You asked Me

to listen;

I did.


Those words

had no meaning

no, not for me.


Distracted by his rifle

and blurry tattoos

I should have listened

to your prompt

and not viewed.


I’ll try again

a second time


Without distraction

I was able to hear

about hope and love

things I hold dear


Your prompt

goes to show

never judge

the unknown.


Hear through the rhetoric

and beautiful tone

a message brought clear

a message sent home


Hey there,

yes you.

We are not alone.

We’re not quite through.


So open your mind

and look beyond you.

Peace can be real

for more than a few.
