Common Ground - Poem by Joy Powell

every one has a deep heart need
that cannot be fulfilled with doctrine
or creed..
for the sould knows nothing more
than just what it is longing for....
a haven that is just and sure
a fortess where it feels secure
an island in a sea of life...
away from all storms of life
save the soul, grant it peace...
let its restless murmurings cease
ask not its race or creed
just take it in its hour of need
peace on earth cannot be found
until all meet on common ground..
