Laden

                     The peoples of the world

                     hijacked by their leaders.

                     Must those who practice peace

                     be mowed down by the mighty few?

                     Or is it that we do not yet embody

                         Peace   powerfully, uncompromisingly,

                      boldly enough to dazzle the violent

                                  With our light -

(2000)

                                                                    This halo over my head

This halo over my head

once was a collar around my neck

Now I’m anchored to heaven

Pulled to the sea

A golden band bigger than a wedding ring

Marrying me to eternity…

This halo feels mighty heavy

It might drop and hang me yet

But there never was a rope, it hung like a threat-

Upon a question of virtue I cannot forget

This halo over me

like a woman of Burma

unleashed and free to feel the earth

in her celestial form, this desire

she harbors as she marches

in slavery’s procession

(2005)
