Foothold

Poem: Foothold
Foothold


Of what use
can my words be?

If you only know hatred and violence.

What magical sound
can my voice make that
would cause your heart
to reverberate with peace?

Where does love gain a foothold
when the holy books tell us
that some people Must die?

Concealed yet present
The common ground we search for
Right beneath our feet!

How Marvelous!
