Welcome to Stream of Consciousness Saturday hosted by Linda G Hill.  For this week we were prompted to write about “side”.  I have to admit that I changed the last line because it was originally too repetitious for my tastes in a poem… but the fact that I did a poem and didn’t change anything else besides that one line is a milestone for me.

Anyone who knows me will know I do my best to avoid the news and politics.  My boyfriend, on the other hand, is the exact opposite, so it is difficult for me to stay as oblivious as I once was (not that you can ever be truly oblivious to what’s happening in the world).  I suppose it doesn’t need any further explanation than that.


You take your side, I’ll take mine
Draw a line in the sand
Who is right and who is wrong
An idea, an ideal

Stand on a stone
Looking down
Where has humanity gone

Make a statement
Take a step into war
Bleeding on all sides

Aren’t we all beings
Come from the same place
But you have your god
And I have mine
Who breaks the barrier?

Of this side and that

  1. I love this. The poem, and what it says, as well Beautifully done. May it enter into many hearts, souls, and minds, until people can learn that we don’t need to agree with each other to accept one another.
