Wow! I absolutely loved this poem! My favorite part was the last stanza: "a drop into our sea of love" extremely powerful metaphor. It reminds me of Mahatma Gandhi's words which went something like this: "When I despair, I think that through the ages there have always been dictators and tyrants and they always fall. Always. Think of it." One could tell that you despise the person/ leader you are talking about, but that your hatred has not clouded your mind, nor has it altered your ability to love and feel compassion for your fellow man. Thank for sharing these beautiful and obviously heartfelt words.
