We Surrender...
gouache on acid free card 100 cm x 60 cm

Surrounded by a hostile world
Demanding that we change and conform

Our defence?...We surrender!

Surrender our fists, clenched in anger
In exchange for open hands of trust

Surrender our hostilities and aggression
In exchange for a loving embrace

Surrender our weapons
In exchange for the tools of harvest

Surrender our prejudice of colour
In exchange for a circle of sisters and brothers

Surrender our misguided will
In exchange for the will of our Creator

We surrender to faith

We surrender to prayer

We surrender to God

We surrender…
