#71 (unsheathing empathy)

empathy

settling

for fury

not for hate

I wish to

use my voice

like a storm of knives

cutting away the festering flesh

of ignorance and lies


if Justice is blind

let’s unveil

the brilliant darkness

behind her blindfold

let it blaze a hole

into the universe

burn away the

ties of polite disarray


resisting

with all my might

stop listening to

the half-truths and lies

remembering the history

of my heart

unsheathing empathy

with an open mind
