Promise Me – A Poem by Teal Scott

(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.
