End the Fray

This breach –
this ever-widening gap
fear induced
pits us
against them
as if humanity
can be divided
a selective process.

We need a balm
to soothe societal
wounds, a tonic
to calm the angst
until clarity
quells the uproar
and kindness
replaces this sin.

(For Ragtag Community’s prompt: balm, and Fandango’s: gap.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
