war is not the answer

Posted to Action Poetry




but how can we find our way
to bring some of this today
and leave it for yesterday's
tomorrow
so why do you punish me
with brutality?
what's going on
is the crystal big
and glomming to my heart
my blood is freezing
my feet can't move
the pinpricks of
mother daughter
father son
judging
who is right
who is wrong
who will bring us
understanding

why do you punish me
with brutality
instead of asking
me
what's going on

what's going on?
