• Promise Me

    A poem in which teal speaks to the human race

    Promise me now, Promise me always Even as they strike you down with a myriad of hatred and violence, Even as they dismember and destroy you that no man can ever be your enemy. The only thing worth anything is love; Unconditional, invincible, limitless love. One day when you face this world Unburdened by the tyranny of fear and hate and greed Your fellow men will behold you. Across a thousand cycles of living and dying in full bloom Your joy will become eternal. No sun or moon that ever rises, will ever see it fade.
