instead of wanting.
It’s more important to get it
than to get gotten.
It’s in the act of forgiving
that we are forgiven.
Most things are better remembered
All it really takes to be a part of
is to flip a single script of just one word.
Valleys from the mountains,
one letter upside down and
Me turns into We
and we are found.
instead of accentuating disparities
finding common ground
and accepting our average.
In the middle of the mean,
not high or low just in between,
on the level
is where we find our leverage.
Just the same as, not exalted
not accepting blame or being faulted
but exactly where we’re supposed to be.
Finding our place of comfort in
the skin that we’ve been given
and knowing that when alone
we’re in good company.
So from our doubt we discover faith,
we provide love to replace the hate
and offer up some peace in the face of war.
Substitute joy for sadness;
cast some light into the darkness
