People do not want conflict.
They want peace.
Bring on the peacemaker, then.
And only then.
Pacify and peace dance together.
Each comes from the same root
where all breath comes from.
Curious that you have been sent to us.
Listen to what grows out of the silence.
Hearing and seeing, using all the senses,
make the strangeness recede
behind the cacophony stored
in a separate room apart
from all that is vital to life.
Though the spirit works and moves best
in a synthesis of differences
we must learn to strengthen
the cords that keep us on the ground.
