Show, don’t Tell

our world is at war

a war for our minds
a war for our souls
a war for us all

this war can’t be won
with bullets and bombs

peace can’t win through violence
freedom can’t win by taking prisoners
you can’t teach a man the sanctity of human life
by trying to kill him
you can’t teach him the value of human rights
by denying him his

they can’t win
they have already lost
condemning themselves
to be
drowning in hatred

don’t hate them
don’t fear them
feel sorry for them
feel sorry for their families
they were children once
with lives to live
somebody’s sons

but
we can still win
the battle is for our souls
and
it’s hard to love
in the face of hatred
but
we must

or we’re all lost

peace and freedom
can only ever win
by
showing the world
how
beautiful
they truly are

setting an example

No One and You

I want to know
the song
your soul hums
when you’re staring out the window
and dream about the future.

I want to learn it by heart
and sing it in bars.
Empty bars
full of people
who are
no one and you.

I want to make my shoulders
for you to stand on
to help you reach your goals
further up
than you have yet
dared to dream.

I want to learn your truth
and shout it
from the roofs
of the tallest buildings
in cities
I haven’t heard of yet.

If I know but a couple of things
about this world
it is that
You are
and
You make me.

An old jigsaw

They sat one evening on the riverbank
shielding themselves from the wind in each others arms.
He was breathing in the fresh air
and she was shivering.

She said ‘as we’re sitting here life is passing us by just like the water’.
He said ‘you and me here in this moment is life’.

He said ‘if we had planned ahead we wouldn’t be sitting here like this right now’.
She said ‘if we had planned ahead we would have already been home’.

And then they both said ‘I love you’.
