Shadow and Reflection ~ Philip Brent Harris
We know less is more and more is less.
Great description of our current mess.
How much will you fight for, sacrifice,
Will you overlook corruption and vice?
Do you know where you are, why and
When, who you want to be by the end?
If you accept even one mass shooting
Carrying even one hate flag, saluting,
Mirroring people of the Third Reich,
Your instinct is not to talk but strike.
You think police need more weapons,
To choke a suspect, necks to kneel on,
Armor rather than community support,
I urge you; make violence a last resort.
Mirror the good in the faith you follow
Not color, gender, race; they’re shallow.
Everyone knows love, family and friends,
All, no matter who; we cannot pretend.
When we our neighbors as ourselves see
Will we finally know we’re all one family?
