Divided and split like rotting oranges,

devoured by evil agendas

taking away our choices,

drawing savage lines,

destroying freedoms,

and imperilling peace.

Denying community,

using rivalry and rifts

to build their stores,

stacking shelves with our 

hope and stealing our 

safety and certainty

so, then the future

is filled with fears.


Shall we sleepwalk 

into their schedule? Or,

will they waken us and

common sense call us to

celebrate our diversity,

do good to our neighbours,

construct community,

value each persons’ place,

honour each human life,

and match it with our

willingness to seek

our way ahead

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
