Cut Your Losses

So many people
die
everyday,
the line between our losses and theirs
is beginning to blur.
 
Cut Your Losses
they say (to us)
Go Home
they say (to them)
as if where they are
is not their home.

How many lifeboats
will it take to cross
this ocean of hate?
Will there be
enough?
 
Cut Your Losses
they say (to us)
Go Home
they say (to them)
as if where they are
is not where they have always been.

I stand
with they who are mourning
that may wish me gone.
I do not hate because hating gets you nowhere.
I only wish peace on their inner journey.
 
Tonight I will wish on a star
for everyone.
