wave the flag of love and beauty

if we drown in sorrow

and fear
and we become 
like a raging sea
we are all sunk

we owe it to those
who have had
everything taken from them,
not to turn our backs
on beauty and love
those people
who have been driven
from their homes
by fear and rage and greed
are probably ordinary
people like you and me
who valued love and beauty
and probably saw the goodness
in other people

don’t become like the ones
who have driven them
from their homes
don’t become like the haters
and the fire starters

you and i must hold tight
the flag of love and beauty
and wave it high on the hill
so all can see
and use it to navigate this
cruel world
