A Brave and Startling Truth

A Brave and Startling Truth


We, this people, on this small and drifting planet
whose hands can strike with such abandon
that in a twinkling, life is sapped from the living.
Yet those same hands can touch with such healing, irresistible tenderness
that the haughty neck is happy to bow
and the proud back is glad to bend.
Out of such chaos, of such contradiction
we learn that we are neither devils nor divines.
