SMUGGLE COMPASSION



Smuggle Compassion

for Librotraficante, and more especially for all our beautiful children everywhere! (Written in response to the banning of books in Arizona and in response to the fear that fuels such actions.) http://www.librotraficante.com  

* Please feel free to make as many copies as you like and distribute them profusely with love!  Be the love that creates the best kind of change!


smuggle books
         if you must
but with them smuggle compassion
sneak it into your own heart
tuck it between each page
         if you must
dry your tears     
soothe your fears
bare your chest show a breast
bribe the border guards with it
         if you must      
smuggle your heart right out in the open
into the hearts lives souls of others
wear it on your soft sleeve
make your heart an open book
take a page from the wisdom of the ages
         if you must
with patience grasshopper
fellow feeling      
in grace go
with a glad smile's healing tears
a new river is flowing
from these wet books
