Facing Darkness

 

Facing Darkness

One atrocity will replace another.
Each must be recorded,
not ignored,
to give us the strength
to face the next, most sure to come.

With Guess That Art II, Ronovan asks us to write a poem inspired by Guernica, which was painted by Pablo Picasso in response to Nazi Germany’s 1937 bombing of the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.
