No Longer

~~~~~ I can no longer write of hate Not even to decry it I can only write of love Though our actions belie it I must not chew on pain and fear Though daily on the menu I must change my diet As I cannot change my venue ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  […]
