Above All

Love is the source
of all good things
and will provide
though it must
kill and devour
to feed and raise
beloved children
who keep alive
long enough
for them
to love and
a very glad
and beautiful mess
of growing for love
so well worth the stress -
but growth is mad
when way too much
of any good thing
turns it all bad
if we billions bring
pollution and death
with each greedy excess
in every global zone
a poisonous Spring,
children will cry
and die alone.
