Offer CPR – Curiosity, Presence & Respect

In a world where there appears
to be so much animosity and
a breakneck speed velocity
toward judgments and disdain
it all feels like a runaway train

So how to refrain from
blame and being mean
as we find ways to lean
in with a renewed inclination
toward integration and amplification

of all that is good and true
and worthy of our tenacity
and capacity to create and instate
a world that works for all before we fall
into an abyss of our own making

Curiosity may be just the key
to create harmony and heartier bridges
between you and me as we speak and seek
to understand rather than brand
and demand alliance and compliance

to our preferred proclivities
about the way things should be
And what is required is to be inspired
to find within us the presence
and reverence to ask “What if…?”

Questions that evoke our essential potential
questions that lead to introspection
inquiries that could foster interconnection
rather than the divisive mess
we must now collectively address

In a world of toxicity and duplicity
in this current atmosphere of fear
rather than derangement and estrangement
could we dream and scheme into being
a liberating and exhilarating way of seeing

A vision where all voices are respected
and a multiplicity of choices protected
as we find a way to defray dismay
by embracing a vast vista of pluralities
and potentialities that include us all
