Be Part Of The Solution - Poem by James Tipp

The sea of hate is as furious and catastrophic as is possible
It has its own Tsunamis, storms and biting chilling winds.
It feeds on the disaster and pain of every breaking wave
Drowns the unsuspecting in the suddenness of the unexpected.
Within this whirlpool of destruction and anger a floating raft
Whose occupants have clambered aboard and cling together
The storm still rages, their pain still as real, yet there is calm.
They seek a solution of reconciliation, another way of pain
For peace will never come without the cost of letting go.
To empty this sea with a teaspoon an impossible task
Yet every dropp removed is a step along the way to peace.
Drown in the sea of you will, but the raft beckons all
Stop being a victim and become part of the solution
No sides taken just a raft of dialogue in a sea of hate.
