Times of peace
Every voice to be heard
Quests for the
Ideas and moments of
Patterns too random to see
Every day the same, yet sporadically
Recollections and revelations
From different points of view
Even after conversations have been had;
Connections made, connections broken
Time will tell what mattered, what were tokens.
Natural gifts, new talents
Abilities to overcome, to
Live life to the fullest.
Nearer than far
Ever present like the stars
Inclined to hear, to hurt, help
Generous, gracious, guarded
Houses close, homes differ
Borders, beliefs, hobbies, griefs
Moments define us
Emotions guide us
Mentors lead the way
Innocence found or lost –
Every second adds to our being
Leave it all behind
Obstructed by insanity
Vilified by villainy
Eroding the soul
& turning things about
Leaning on the strong
Stitched together at heart
Kai Addison has her best friend, her brother
Iniko has the eons of the mountains
Neither hesitates to stop, to help.
Dorinda has her beliefs; Deborah has her spouse
Neither restricts family to blood alone.
Everyone within their circle, without, gets a kind word
Support – seen and unseen
Smiles, a simple gesture, to knit a stronger world.
Juries can’t always cast their vote
Unjust rulings can choke one’s throat
Secret sins might not see daylight
Time may or may not heal all wounds
Innocence is for whom the crier booms
Courts extend beyond the walls
Every wrong deserves a right – that’s all.
Investigations finding truth
Marriages honoring vows
Anger subsiding towards ceasefires
Gaps in communication closed
Impossible problems solved
Each step closer to the goal.
