A Telling Moment

Facing the chasm

we ourselves dug, we are brought

up short. We must choose.

Do we walk away, holding

on to grievances

or do we look within, look

across and begin.

It won’t be easy. We’ll mess

up, but together

we can begin…and we do.

With memories, song,

and laughter we start to build

a bridge for crossing

and show our children and our

children’s children who we can be
