A Plea for Unity

Tear Down the WALLS

by Sandra Nelms-Ludwig

Little thought expended on finding existing commonalities.

Asserting lightning flash faulty judgements are common maladies.

Being dismissive comforts and protects biases of the angry masses.

Environments entrenched in distrust few "other kinds"surpasses. 

Labels create invisible walls drenched in disdain.

Serious loss for all humankind; netting no societal gain.

Salvific blossoms for our progenies will shrivel and die.

Unless hoary hatred is uprooted and regrowth we decry.

Courageously confront our biases and change our mindsets.

Keeping present divisive path reaps on this Earth only regrets.
