Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.", Martin Luther King, Jr.
a thousand bird wings rang in my ear
a thousand birds cried in the air
you - a blackbird
flying through my head
and nested in my heart
