Peace warrior

Yet not to be
but trend ending
towards the
light of peace
fleeing the
darkness of hate

a counter movement
of degree, small
incrementals heading
where there's room

slivers of warmer
feeling in a cold heart
small changes in
the only heart

touchable by me
mine alone, free
to repair, prepare
for what i'd
like to be

knowing i could
would fight kill
need be but
willing to forsake
hate even for
mine enemy.

What a wonderful economy of words! During my first reading of this poem I felt as if I was releasing, with bare hands, a tight knot on a steel cable. The knot finally undone, my bleeding fingers encountered nothing but a new throbbing of understanding in my own mind and soul:
A God's mandate.
Henry's message: Sometimes it takes some bleeding of our own to remember God's mandate

If only we could learn to love instead of learning how to hate, then, this world would be a much better place. Thanks for your strong message and your kind words to me.

Last week I was studying Martin Luther King Jr in class and his wonderful message of nonviolence and Christ's preachings of "love your enemy"
If we were to follow that there would be no more war on earth
Very powerful poem, hope that people are really listening to such calls
Love and peace

What a dichotomy in that title!;-) Excellent, wise poem Henry!
We all must first know our own heart.

Oh I agree with Ed on this one!!

Love Tinka

We should all strive to flee that darkness of hate - before it's too late.
