Is It Safe?

Is it safe
To release
The other
In our place?

Is it safe
To welcome
The stranger
In our midst?

Is it safe
To meet
The enemy
At our gate?

Is it safe
To allow Our weapons
From our side?

Our safety
We will find
In forgiveness
In release.

Our safety
We will find
When we welcome
The unknown.

Our safety
We will find
With our enemy
By our side.

Our safety
We will find
When in love
We stand at risk.
