North American Dreaming: Truth

William Burkholder's poen delineates the esssence of truth.

Truth lies in the olive branch, the dove.
Its causes do not shine on the tips of spear points,
or the glint of a rifle sight,
Truth lies in discourse,
Engagement and diplomacy.
Understanding cultures,
understanding the human condition,
And all its many forms and circumstances.
We all bleed,
we all breathe,
love, hate,
cry, and laugh.
A day will come when all people will
cry the joyous tears of peace,
but today,
we are too ignorant to cry.
