As We Wait for Peace Poem by David Michael Jackson


AS WE WAIT

as we wait in Auschwitz

as we wait in Kosovo

kindness can’t be explained with chemistry

or diagrams

or even logic

kindness is more than reaching

more than loving

kindness is sometimes the only flower

in a field of weeds

as we wait in Auschwitz

as we wait in Kosovo
