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..
