Social Justice Poetry

Right in the Middle | A Social Justice Poem by Brandon Marlon

Jews dream of David’s reign,
of Solomon’s expansive kingdom;
Muslims dream of their caliphate,
of a glorious empire of conquests.

Yet there is a third dream at hand
of middle-ground concession,
an offspring of compromise,
the progeny of goodwill.

Let a lucid consensus reflect
that there is in each conflict
one single right side:
that of the peacemakers.
