RESIDE




Why beat a dead horse,

When instead,

You can saddle up

And ride

The bridge

To the other side

Of this great divide?


There,

As you put on

The shoe

Of someone

Different from you,

Understanding,

Not anger, lies.

And,

you may find

You, yes you,

Become

The bridge

You ride

To overcome

The divide

That's overcome you.


So,

If only

For a moment,

Put on the shoe

That doesn't fit

You

And stand in awe

of it

As awkward

As it feels

Yes,

your head may reel.

Your heart could too.


As you

Find

A part of you

Is there

In the anger

And disgust

For someone

Unlike you.

As things

Become clear,

The hate

That is so near,

May perhaps

Dissappear?


As you uncover

And discover

What you know

To be true,

On the other side,

Of this

Great divide

Is you.


You were there all along

As you are human too.
