our differences – prayer for peaceful coexistence

how do we survive
as a people
when some of our kind
have seemingly
gone mad
are out of control
have no boundaries
they won’t cross
set no limits
as to the acts
of violence
and the carnage
they are willing
to leave behind
without conscience
so to instill fear
within the minds
of those
they’ve deemed
conquerable
and pawns for sacrifice

let us the people
of this earth
who yearn
for a peaceful
coexistence
not become fearful
but rather
be willing to see
the wisdom had
in setting aside
our differences
so to become
united
within
the strength
of our diversity
and then
through such
a noble bond
of integrity
we shall be able
to set limits
and place boundaries
on those
who have chosen
to have none
as to the acts
of violence
and the carnage
they are willing
to leave behind
without conscience

peace out

beholden – prayer to end hate

who hears the call
for education
choice
opportunity
and equality for all
that persistent voice
the steady howl
within
the winds
of change
along its journey
to fill the ears
of the captive child
taught to hate
instead of shown
the tender beauty
serenity
and integrity
beholden
to love’s virtue

peace out
