"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind". -Mohandas K. Gandhi

That music that is child soothes the beast.
Perhaps if Nero’s lyre could also be cradled dear,
No war would be: south, north, west, or east.
What would we have to fear?

Predators shall and have always existed.
This is certainly so.
But humans hunting humans: That is twisted.
It is something I wish I did not know.

Tenderness can dispel such.
This, my will is to see.
It is needed very much.
So must it be!
