When the world goes “BOOM” you need me,
realize I was in you all along.
A river of life rises through your spine
and scans the far horizon for signs of
stress . . .
. . . an inharmonious note
. . . a broken rhythm
. . . a smile that is a little forced.
Long before the bullets fly
and the sword is drawn,
long before the angry word
or the icy look
there is an imperceptible ripple in the air
a loss of peace.
A peacemaker knows that wars are won
long before they have begun.
