We Can

samuelpye  
Failings,
unknown,
questions,
inaction,
gentle elephants,
stand defiant,
snakes squeeze me,
sharing my warmth,
exchange for their venom,
deep terror,
boiling in a Mongol cooking pot,
dehydrating on a Roman cross,
shrieks and cry’s of Mother’s and children,
I see nothing in the dark abyss of calculated cruelty,
wicked hollow laughs of capitulation,
companionship,
lasting reminders,
heated exchange,
slowly cooling,
perhaps we can change,
