In Silence, In Peace - Poem by Sojourner Kincaid Rolle

In silence
I settled down to write
what urgings I felt
the need to speak from this high place
some heretofore unspoken word
to find an ultimate uplifting thought
a tender clarity for the troubled mind
a soothing hope for the saddened heart

In peace
I found that nameless something
smouldering like ash-baked embers
rising to fill the all of me
and overflow profusely
to openly flame
burning through all barriers
through to every other soul

To heal the breach
To seal the bond
