sow our thoughts;
inspire our lives,
shape our existence,
but we must be wary.
Use wisely, strength is needed,
the same power also destroys.
Knowledge, like a serpent's tooth is sharp,
is able to pierce hearts, and started wars.
Let's temper our quills then, for heaven's sake;
and build bridges that lead us from hate.
Not for your country, nor your faith,
or rewards that come from grace;
but simply out of love.
You may know what's said,
may think too true;
