The state

Stephen Chinnock

2 June 2020

The state
of our state
of our nation
of the world

Is troubling now
like never before
how do we seek redemption
from this diminished state

Listening to Bob Marley
is a good start
redemption found
just in the sound
of his guitar
and words of great wisdom

Need to go back there
in a blessed state
taking on those rhythms
so sublime

Seeking redemption
in this troubled time
hold out your hand
to those in need
and they are plenty

For everyone you touch
your redemption will be complete
when you reach out
to another heart!
