Pacifism


Pacifisms

The praying man does not let violence into his heart
if his prayers are truly prayers. He can be raised in
violence. He can have practiced violence at some point in
his life. He can live in a community of violence but
his acts now spirituality and espoused beliefs are the opponents
to that violence. If he takes on violence again he makes himself
it, a hypocrite and little else. If he falsifies his interest in
peace he does nothing new, just ugly and divisive. Falsehood
is the quickest bullet of all.

He will not let the violent simply do what they wish to do,
even though their history is long and laborious for doing just
that.

He is the future if we accept that in ourselves. He is the
upright ape without allegiance to his past primitivisms. But,
the sinister is always lurking there. The man who is evil enough
to pray for peace with a machete by his side.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The poet realizes the years are fleeting and wishes to share poems while she is walking upon lovely terra firma instead of beneath it. If even one person reads them and understands, this is honorable. This poem lost its sense of direction in a manuscript. But, alone, it can stand at the corner and cross without tripping.
