Chasms And Bridges - Poem by Ted L Glines

Chasms and Bridges
by Ted L Glines

Whether dancing the circle
or sitting in the pews,
the world is full of wonder
and knee-jerk news.

For those full of spite
and woeful complaining,
the world is full of darkness;
no hope remaining.

Diversity spawns
attacking spasms,
elevating hate
and deepening the chasms.

You are who you are,
smart as a fox;
why confine yourself
to a bleak little box?

For those full of love
and compassion caring,
the world is full of brightness
and warmth in sharing.

Diversity spawns
a chance to build bridges,
elevating love
and life privileges.

You are who you are,
smart as a fox;
expressing yourself,
you're outta that box!

We can make this world
a beautiful place
if we toss away the frown
and put a smile on our face.

Abolish that burden
of complaints you've been lugging;
begin building bridges
and get used to hugging!
