In America, Charlotte, Diversity, Home, Poetry by Judy Schindler1 Comment

“The shortest distance between
two people is a story…”

so listen
to multiple stories
multiple voices
multiple perspectives

it is not a zero sum game
your win is not my loss
your belonging is not my alienation

front pages
front lines of a battle
we can fight against each other
or work with each other

single words, single statements
actions and reactions
and rebuttals that build walls
that get us nowhere

tell me about you
tell me what matters to you
so that your movement forward
can be mine
can be ours
