I say this poem to you

I say this poem to you

from outside the cell of every tortured or executed political prisoner

I say this poem to you

from outside the palace where Allende shot himself

I say this poem to you

from outside the limousine where jfk was assassinated

I say this poem to you from the balcony

where mlk was assassinated

I say this poem to you

in the ballroom where robert kennedy was assassinated

I say this poem to you

from the bedroom of every abused child

I say this poem to you

from every wasted night where

loneliness, misery, and hate

occupies the human spirit

I say this poem to you

in the hopes that one day

people won't have to write these poems

and people will learn the meaning

of the word peace.
