Refuge in My Soul

by Zachary A. Horn

I’ve taken
refuge
in my soul.

You are the
only thing
that is real
I whisper.

You are the
only thing
I can control
I sigh.

I cannot
cure the
madness of men.

I cannot
make them
more loving
and kind.

I can only
be the change
I wish to see
in the world.

One act
of love and
kindness
at a time.

I will
love my
enemy.

Then
I will
have none.

I will
love my
neighbor
as myself.

Then
I will need
no fences.

I will
grow the light
within me.

Then
I will
lighten
the darkness
without.
