In the duality I’ve seen
it’s no place to see straight or think
when will we let the light shine in
stop the fight, stop the hate
start the love, right the way
expressive being and creative
beauty in the making
from the heart we begin
hear it as it calls
let me in, let me in
let me up
let me live
live through me, the light, the peace.
the hands have always been
these hands will not harm another… for they couldn’t.
I will never be the tyrant
I will always be the friend.
I will always be the companion who seeks nothing in return, nor revenge
I will always be the giver
even if the giver never gets
I will always be the kind of heart
because that is what is meant
You may beat me with your fists or words
but I will never flinch
you may rape me with a thousand screams
but my soul you’ll never pinch
you may bruise me and may strip me
but in the end you’ll be right with me
your true color is seen.
