The book lies open,
One word, attached to a sticky note,
Slipped between the pages:
It’s just a word, you say;
How can one word mean the difference
Between hope and shame?
Because unconditional means
Without limits or conditions,
Unconditional means absolute –
Complete and perfect;
You cannot argue it,
You cannot escape the unconditional
Because every lie, every protest you can muster,
Will crumble in the face of unconditional.
