Thursday Poem: Joined
Might God give the weak to the strong, for one to lift the other up, for one to keep the other humble?
Might God give the sure to the shaky, to keep each other rooted, lest pride or wandering take them each too far?
Might God give the quiet to the loud, giving one more strength to find her voice and the other wisdom to learn to listen?
Might God give the joyful ones to the sorrowful, that there may be laughter where skies have been gray and grief where sadness was never recognized?
Might God give us to each other
to be what we cannot be on our own?
