Step by Step

I keep wondering as

I follow news reports:

When did we get so mean?

Retaliation has always

had its deadly, dark, draw

but it seems that we are soul-stunted,

unwilling and oblivious to

empathy and the power to

grow us deep and wide. 

Perhaps now seems a dim-time

but there are always those 

who reach for forgiveness. 

Maybe there are even more 

people now than ever,

giving themselves to compassion 

and willing to be broken, some,

for another. 

And, every small step

of compassion moves us all

the vision

of wholeness.
