I just want to get it all out
and tell you what it’s all about.
Alas, my thoughts are buried inside;
perhaps that’s where they ought to reside.
Can I let go of judging words, so they lose their power?
And continue to bridge relationships so they don’t sour?
Trying to be the peacemaker and keep us all together–
what an exhausting endeavor.
We should all see things from each other’s view,
not throwing hands in the air saying we’re through.
We have different ideas of what is right–
this is no reason to bicker and fight.
I try to keep us all together–
maybe this is just another storm to weather.
