The river of peace

could flow again

but war makes

a harsh dry bed

a stopping point

where air is still

There is no win

just dead ends

The river of peace

shall only flow

when we learn

that love is the current

which carries it along

 

 

Geta (Wooden Sandal)

These shoes fit me fairly well

I’ve worn them for a time

The shoes on your feet

very different from mine

Never have I tried yours on

neither have you mine, in kind

You know not the condition of my sole(s)

nor I, whether your walk might lead to gold

I will gladly tell you of my shoes

the journey, the comfort, the wear and tear

I too, will listen if, of your shoes

you choose some tales you dare to share

We then, will learn of each other’s trudging

and thus avoid a quickness in judging

They’re killing our babies

They’re KILLING our babies

those multi-bulleted, semi-automatic

man-made, politician pocket-lining

machines; getting into the unheld hands

of the broken-spirited, empty-hearted

spice-laden, alcohol-filled, mind-altered

once-upon-a-time hopefully-optimistic

turned love-voided, sadly-desperate

forever-angered, permanently-deranged

Don’t kill our babies

DON’T KILL our babies

They’ve just left our arms

to grow and learn

meet new friends

We tell them it will be okay

they’ll have fun

as they cling to our legs

fearing the changes

fearing the strangers

as we leave them

They’re killing our babies

THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

but tomorrow someone will

still sell these murder weapons

and the next day

AND THE NEXT DAY

and the next

Why aren’t we storming the Capitol

screaming out the despair of our nation

 that THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

 THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

THEY’RE GOING AWAY

TAKE THESE GUNS AWAY

THEY MUST BE STOPPED

FROM KILLING OUR BABIES
