Warriors of Words

Listen; poets of the world
your words are mighty
your vision is clear
           war IS war
           not peace

The voice of the oracle speaks
           through your words

Fight with your pen
           with your vision

Open the space between space
the world between worlds
           between your words

The world is not simple
It unfolds in layers of understanding
and misunderstandings
Create that empty space
           of understanding
by being unbearably honest

Create that space for free thinking
curling through your words
To strike in the heart of hearts
like a bolt of enlightenment

You are the carrier of the flame
the favorite of the muse
the warrior of words
Truth is truth
           seek it
                      speak it

The bush is on fire
           illusions run deep
seek, speak, the truth
Hope shall flourish
peace shall flourish
in the s p a c e

This poem is dedicated to all the poets, writers, artists, thinkers & spiritual leaders that made
the Book of Hope & the World Healing Book possible.

Alas, said by a man, but well said, by Arnulf Øverland. In a world full of male faces and voices, I delight in yours!
