Today I want to write a Psalm
Not strict about the content or form

David cried out to the Lord
And praised Him for he was his God
He experienced much happiness and suffered much pain
Praising God sure kept him sane

This world of ours is full of sorrow
So much uncertainty about the morrow

Join me in dance and song
In unity embrace, and let’s be strong
Praying and on waiting for better days
Meanwhile to Hope our glasses raise.

    Song ? Ok
    But Dance ? Very difficult to conjure up that much of abandon in the midst of the huge humanitarian crisis

      My daughter is a dancer, hence the image! When she dances, it cheers us up. Many people are posting hilarious dances on the Internet. Though the situation is serious, humor is a source of comfort and help at this time.

    Thank you so much Vijay. I have been writing poems and prayers of hope during these turbulent times. Hope is all we have to cling to.
