Peacemaker

Peace is not silence

My peace is not silent

Don’t whisper Shalom to me and walk away

Do nothing

Don’t you fucking dare.
 

Peace cannot coexist with oppression

Peace does not require submission

Peace is not blissful ignorance,

Because ignorance is not bliss.

And living in that thick, impenetrable bubble –

Just buries us all deeper

Sort through the rubble

Of every broken, crushed thing.

And scream

Remember the flames

O Peacemaker, open your mouth!
 

Words have power

Your words have power

My words have power

Power that detracts nothing from

Peace.

Power that adds to Peace

Rumbling,

Rising,

Falling,

Flying.
 

True Peace can only come when we

Stand up

Stand together

Breathe together

And fight together

Fight for Shalom.
