Poetry

Let There Be A Window

When The Odds Are Against Us
And Even We Are Against Each Other,
When We May Not Understand
Or Can’t Even Stand One Another,
In The Middle Of the Wall
That May Separate Us,
Let There Be a Window.

When Our Faces Boil With Anger
And We May Not See the Danger
That We May End Up In Just By
Not Letting It Go,
Even Through Holding On to the Wall
That May Separate Us,
Let There Be a Window.

Let There Be a Window
To Let a Bit of Love Leak Through
The Wall of Ego and Contempt.

Let There Be a Window
To Let the Smell of One Pass Through
To Soothe the Soul of the Other.

Let There Be a Window
To Let a Ray of Hope Pass Through
And Widen Its Span Until
It Spreads to Each Brick
And The Wall Cracks
And Crashes Into Pieces
Surrendering to Compassion and Calm.
