The courage of the writer

Paul Tillich gave the spirit proper place
And showed us courage is a place to dwell.
He wrote for us and left us with his grace
Hoping he could reach us and could tell.

So many people imbibed Nazi speech
And lived with minds cut off from human soul.
With pen outstretched in German hand he reached
To touch us as we creep towards the whole.

Expelled from his own country,he wrote on
Continuing during tortuous,war long years
He lived,he loved ,he wrote,he died and then
His books continue to dispatch our fears.

For many men have lived and have destroyed
But Tillich showed us how to face the void
