Anguish, fear and rage

When anguish, fear, and rage ignite our hearts;
when the shock at what's been done
and the desire for revenge burn bright within,
I pray we learn a lesson from the trees:
display the flames of passion,
but release them. Cut them loose
and let them drift, ever so slowly, to the earth
to pave and feed a future
where our differences might more gently be resolved.
