Syllables

Falling into Sound

Falling into Sound


I say “God”.
You say “Allah”.
We all fall down
on the 3-syllable sound.


Has there ever been more discord created by 2 words with three syllables between them?
We have been given so much, yet it never seems to be enough.
I say “God”. You say “Allah”, and the war is on.
Three syllables which the mind says never mix.  While the heart, no matter how broken, must continue on to the  rhythm
of its own syllabic sound- the one of human-ness.
