Two Words

She said two words
More than any other
And in their simplicity
They mixed beauty
With sublime to bring
A universal truth
The world had known
But long forgotten
In its lust for sex:
Save someone.

She said two words
That bore her soul
Allowing it to sift
Like sand to bitter hearts
And light a flame
So dimmed by elements and time:
Save someone.

She said two words
I pray consume the world someday
In baths of pleasant sun and rain
To wash away the crime
And lives cut short
From ambivalence and bitterness:
Save someone.
