Spinach - Poem by Glen Martin Fitch

We formed a bond
we want the world to bless,
but differences
in politics or age,
experience or faith
or race or wage,
ability or health
bring added stress.
Too often we compete
to be the best
or grow dependent
just to meet our needs.
Who's parent?
Who's the kid?
which often leeds
to everything seem
like a power test
'I shouldn't have to
point that out to you.'
You think but do not say.
You wait to blurt that out next fight,
the more to shame and hurt.
I need to know,
'If not from you then who?
And who more so than you
to speak the truth,
if I can't see
I've spinach on my tooth? '
