TPQ kicks off its Sunday with a poem from Steven Katsineris.
I want to sow seeds in the fertile minds of the young,
and see wisdom grow.
To plant flowers in parched desert hearts
and watch love spring anew.
Drench the fires of hatred and intolerance
in a downpour so huge, not a spark remains.
Feed the hungry and starve injustice.
Heal the wounds of life’s thousand painful cuts.
Make only weapons that kill pain and suffering.
Declare a war on war.
Throttle patriotic lies and romantic war.
Freeze greed and warm the poor.
Free minds imprisoned by dogma, conditioning and fear
Plant peaceful thoughts in people’s minds
and watch them sprout.
