We are Unresolved

A discordant note

A work in progress

Something still missing

Wet clay on the wheel

Longing to be complete

This is the time

Between times

When all is given

Yet  not all received

On our way

Moving forward


Stopping means sinking

Sinking means drowning

Inertia is not our friend

Lord have mercy

Pull us up again

Blind Spots

It is painful when I trip

Over my blind spots

They show up this way

In the dark

It is only through

The pain

That they get

My attention

Now I know

It is time to grow

The Path of Peace

Guide my feet

In the path of peace

May I do my part

That war may cease


Teach me how

To listen well

To refrain from judgment

Sending others to hell


It’s not my place

It’s not my call

Judgment stirs up strife

It builds a wall


May I understand

What it is to be

In another’s place

Not obsessed with me


Lean into You

Sit at Your feet

See through Your eyes

Everyone I meet


Invite the stranger in

Share a meal

Enjoy diversity

Let kindness heal


Fear will die

I can lay it to rest

When I choose love

It is the very best


Love will do the job

It will get to work

Root out the darkness

Wherever it may lurk
