Even You

See with your heart-woman

If you, even you
Would let a soft voice
of God
Come through to your heart
Silencing the noise of your drums and missiles
For a while
Thick lies that pretend to make who you are
Might dissolve
And reveal the beauty
Hidden inside your soul

If you, even you
Would let love inhabit
The wells of your heart
In which hatred
Found its home
Perhaps
Thick walls which stand around your soul
Might break loose
And show that you are human
Too

If you, even you
Would decide to stand still
And just once
Look into my eyes as if they are yours
Take them as a door to my heart;
Inside of me
You might see desires
That fear
Did not want our hearts to nurture
And maybe for a moment
You would see that
We are but the same

Then, perhaps
The thick clouds of confusion
Might disperse
So we can recognize
Each other as friends
And not claim
To be enemies
Instead

If you, even you
Would let a soft voice
of God
Tell you who you
Really are
