a poem: three words that can change the world

dedicated to the amazing children and staff at the DC Bilingual School

i am sorry
three words

i forgive you
three more words

six words
between two people

today i saw
kindergarteners do it
with ease

the ease at which
they said
three words

might be a start
for the rest of us
even when it is hard
to say

i am sorry
i forgive you

a clean heart
is the result
a new society
is possible

we were all
once 7 too

today changing the world
came from the playground
with inspiration for all of us

to remember
three words

and like the children
we can say it too
