Nationalism

lighthouse window

Nationalism has never healed anyone, and never will

seeking only division and strife,

seeking chains for children

hating the brown man

and his wife.

And global thinking is simply this:

loving your neighbor,

and loving life.

I Saw Smoke in the Valley

100_1324

I was in one of my mountains, blending

so beautifully with the One,

a deep forest leading to the ridge,

but I saw smoke in the valley, and the sun

turning blood red

I prayed and I knew I could not stay,

at first I heard nothing

but the wind.

And then I heard that still small voice

saying, “Go my son,

you have brothers and sisters there –

still in the fight.”

   

Standing in the fight against hate.

Free from the Hate

Maine and More 496

I grew up near the corn,

a state,

where they slap you on the back,

celebrating their “whiteness”,

imagining,

their superiority.

It is only by His mercy,

that I could see through,

their confederate banner waving,

monsters lived in their hearts,

while the Klan lived with the fire,

of hatred burning,

waiting for their turn,

 searching for a voice,

It is only by His mercy,

that I saw the truth of a mountain,

the peace of the woods,

His love, in creation,

and people,

cultures from around the world,

began speaking,

a young heart wandering in the desert,

to this day, I love India.

It is only by His mercy,

that I’m in my right mind,

loving,

instead of hating,

It’s only by His mercy.
