The War?

There is no "war"

Between

Black & White
Gay & Straight
Left & Right
He & She

The "war" is between
Fearing & Loving

Between
Unquestioned Thought and an Open Heart

Between
Unexpressed Anger & Received Compassion

The "war" is here

Not to draw more lines
Or create more boundaries

It is here to reveal the opportunity at hand

To prompt greater thoughts

To ask us

Once again

To make the choice

Of seeing
Not the obvious
But what lies beyond

Not the surface
But what lies beneath

To choose different tools

This time
To unite
Anew

To review
What truly matters

And act
With the power
Strength and
Clarity
of
Loving Love.
