Perilous Peace

The paths of our journey are different

On occasion our paths may cross

But not converge

If we meet at a crossing

May it be a non-eventful exchange

Each respecting

The other’s differences

Neither requiring the other

To change their beliefs

Yes

A peaceful passing

That is my hope

But

Make no mistake

If you choose to engage in attack

On my beliefs

With your beliefs and opinions

My double edged sword stands

Always ready to be unsheathed
