They hide

Their dessicated hearts

Behind a book

Speaking venom

With a smile

Quick to levy blame

On others

Casting ill will

Upon love

They forget

The power they assign

When they scream

That I am sin

I am the flood

I am the storm

The earth trembles

Where I stand

No more

And no less

Than they

Equal in our frailty

Equal in our faults

While some hide safe

And smug

In their houses of straw

And preach hatred


We are one body

And one love

Will lead us home – Caroline A. Slee
