Bridging The Gap - Poem by Mary Mc Creath

How?
To bridge the gap, gorge, chasm,
forged
by the years of the
tread, trod trodden on backs,
of these.

How?
To stop the fright, fear, terror from the
hand
that holds the latch, bolt, keys
of the life of these.

How?
To help the poor, old, young
giving each a place in the sun, rain, land
that belongs to these.

Topic(s) of this poem: aid, conflict, justice, waiting

    How starts with asking the question but must be followed with action. Thanks for sharing, Mary (Report) Reply
