for my friends


By Mike O’Connell
he was a manly man
but with a woman in his heart
while a distant inner voice
sang a complex song
of freedom for the soul
it is destiny that brings
us together to face the
world as whole being
as correct as any other
with a nod from god
forging a community
proud awash in affection
acceptance of one another
holding on to passion
in a world filled with
mistrust violence hatred
of those not the same
challenging humanity to
see what is before its eyes
consecrated by deep love
components of echoes
reverberating through
history hand in hand
(Mike O’Connell 2/1/18)
