Despite the explosions nearby,
they daven as usual at shul;
a staunch commitment to the Almighty,
in the face of adversity and ruin.
And, the presence of the Shechinah,
who shelters all who seek refuge under her wings;
will guarantee protection to those on the bimah,
and amongst the congregation otherwise serene.
For, neither war, nor the chaos that might ensue,
will damage the spirit of the truly pious;
sending our hopes Above, into the azure blue,
our heartfelt prayers to Whom we trust.
Nothing will shake the faith of the soul,
who aspires to dream beyond what appears bleak;
everything is possible, as silence reveals the toll,
of redemption, soon at hand for the meek.
