Shall we…?



What shall we be

if not each other’s keeper

when night becomes the grim-reaper


What shall we do

if we can’t salt the earth

and our flint can’t  fire give  birth


What shall we say

of he who had vision but could not see

she who had time but was never free


What shall we offer

to a child who cries for his  mother

when his hunger fuels hate for another


What will we find

when we peer to  depths of our soul

will it be  a mound or a big gaping hole


What shall I tell you

my dear friend – that your heart is on the mend

if we take hands  and give shoulders to lend


Seize this moment to choose a side

will you stand up or seek a place to hide?
