April 22nd – Intervention


It’s a big world that surrounds us

With different points of view

We disagree and make a fuss

Opposing thoughts from me and you


Common sense would make it easy

If only sense were common

We choose our stance – choose it freely

Though on misinformation often


Withhold a comment, keep it close

Or share, if begged to give it

Based on knowledge experienced dose

Not just theory but how we live it


Despite all these things to be true

I intervened and alienated you.

Intervention


Familiar faces gathered

Wasn’t expecting

Showing that I matter

An evening of listening; reflecting


They’re only here to help

Listen to their share

Not just hurting myself

They intervene because they care
