Now What?

The door
has been unlocked
beckoning all
to step in and sit.

Will eyes
consider the big picture
or will they
focus on a trivial detail?

Will ears
heed the countless pleas
or will they
echo beguiling blather?

Will hearts
warm up to healing compassion
or will they
congeal like a winter pond?

Will minds
forage for facts
Or will they
settle for effortless excuses?

It depends

Will we

Will we

Will we

Will we?
