The Unspoken Compact (Written June 11)

The Unspoken Compact


Secure against its own,

With no fear of sabotage

From within, the family


Unit, as fragile as glass,

By a process of alchemy

Becomes the bedrock


Of a strong community.

But when the shock

Of a gratuitous act


Of violence hits home,

The unspoken compact

Threatens to unravel,


And it is left to each

Individual, alone,

To make amends.
