Poles Apart..

How did we get to all or none?

If we don’t agree with each other, we are done

Trying to find to the predicament a mutual solution

The problem affects both of us, we need resolution

But poles apart and sharply polarized we stand

Unwilling to even listen to each other, much less understand

That our opinions on the matter that we have crystallized

Can hurt us more than either of us realize…

**

I want the world to shut down, you want normalcy

Isn’t there a segment in the center honestly

Where both of us could find a comfort zone somehow

Leaning towards either end, concomitantly the middle path allow?

**

We are all grappling with unprecedented fear these days

Fear is divisive, by making us cling to our ways

Sticking to our ground gives us a false sense

Of security, thus we keep up the pretense

That our view is right, the other one wrong

We think our immutable ideas make us strong…

**

In my humble opinion, the enemy is but one

The only way to conquer is by working in unison..
