I’ve found it.
The soothing balm to burning hate,
A method free from crude debate,
The key to peace we can create,
I need it.
When I’m confronted by these strangers’ faces,
Shrinking, feeling out of place,
A smile would slow my heart’s fast pace,
I feel it.
When I’m surrounded by the ones I love,
And confidence I’m empty of,
They reassure that I’m enough,
I show it.
The friendly wave that I can give,
And find the hard strength to forgive,
The only way that I can live,
