• 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.
