"Standing on Stone" - Wednesday Wisdom & Writing

By Megan Inwards


They’ve taken your word

And fashioned it into a sword

That they hand to me

To point at my own heart.


But I have beaten it into a plowshare.

With it I break the hard ground

And I plant seeds of wheat

And water them with my tears.


When summer comes

The crop grows tall.

In fall I will invite them.

We can harvest

And bake bread

And eat together

And remember our hurts no more.
