unpuzzling the enemy


hate screams black in fear, with intent
to turn listener to stone or distraction

what you think is the opposition
dressed in defenses worn comfortably

is only,       just another
scared,       eyes-wide        and searching

no different than the face in
your bathroom mirror each morning

  1. So true!!! It is fear and hate that are the true “enemy.” And sadly, they can be very formidable. But I still believe that the power of love, peace and understanding is the strongest.
