Words

 

These words aren’t mine

I’m only borrowing them

They’re floating free, and

Now it’s your turn

 

Coalesced with love

They can touch  souls

Igniting passions and

Swaying hard hearts

 

Merged with Faith

Illuminate dark spaces

Where fear stands

Safe in the shadow

 

Hand in hand with hope

Raise eyes to see

Above the walls

Enclosing battered spirits

 

Integrated with compassion

Bring kindness to where

Indifference lives

Warming the coldness within

 

Side by side with curiosity

Uncover and unfold

The secrets held

In us, and our world

 

With conscience work

To speak against

The blighted appetites

Of greed and power

 

That mix our words

With hate and fear

Taking us deeper into

The delusional mire

 

Take the words that

Are ours to use

Find new ones

Befriend them all

 

Search your heart

And mix them well

Then offer them back

For other’s to tell.
