What if we thought of women

as the secret threads of this world?

 
We are, after all, no further ahead
of war, and are behind the notion

 
That hearts and minds can be won over.
We are, after all, the threads

 
Which birth and nurture soldiers in this world.
We are, after all, the threads

 
Which nurture peacemakers in this world.
What if we thought of women

 
As the secret threads of this world?
Secret threads, that when brought together

 
To say enough is enough to human violence,
women would create a blanket of safety

 
And comfort, nourishment, and a sense of being home.
Oh, to nurture such a question!
