The Answer

Love is a shield,
an armor to the wars
that hate has perceived.

Sometimes we overlook
feelings that tame
the wild; we can be wrong.

The wreck of a human
heart is hard to heal but
we try to nurse incessantly.

There are walls built to
divide but there are also arms
trained to destroy the divorce.

We figure out many solutions
until we come to a conclusion
that the Divine can dictate.
