Don’t Keep the Peace

Standard

Do you say what you mean
or do you remain silent,
keeping the peace?
And just what kind of peace
are you keeping
if by remaining silent
you feed the inner fury,
fury giving rise to war eventually?

Don’t keep the peace–
say what you mean,
but with great love

to be loved is unsettling
for those who haven’t
known its depth and breadth

plunge deep and far
love limitlessly
unsettle me

and for God’s sake,
don’t keep the peace.
