Nor Does It

Nor Does It

 ~

When every action taken,
Word spoken, song sung,
Picture painted or snapped
Dance choreographed, performed
Structure designed, built,
Torn down, replaced,
Left to nature,
Music composed,
Tale written, told,
Every moment
Remembered or lost,
In deeps of time,
Every person loved or hated
Serves as prayer,
Sacred and sanctified,
Though no deity
Of any kind is invoked,
We witness
Both sides
Of life/death
Celebrating existence.

If,
Languishing
Under gelid stars,
Brightly burning
In the night sky
Or basking
In noonday sun
On a winter’s day
Were the same?
When all you know,
Think you know
Or imagine,
Whether determined
Right or wrong,
True or false,
Does not, cannot
Matter, in any real sense,
To our outcome.

Neither
What we believe
Think, theorize,
Prove, disprove
Will change
How the universe
Works, manifests.
Nor does it
Excuse our
Inhumanity
To other
People
………..

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
