Be still.


Peace,
be still

but not the stillness
of muffled voices
of gagged mouths
of fearful eyes
of frightened souls
and dead bodies

not the silence
of the compromise
decided by the one that is stronger

Peace
be still

stillness in the hearts

stillness
quiet
calm
rest
healing

Hands
quietly reaching out across self-imposed borders
across generation-imposed borders
at first gently, then firmly
reaching out
to transform into sisters and brothers
whoever
they may touch
quietly
gently
peacefully

Peace,
be still.
