Unity (a poem)

I have spent my
whole life
desperately loving
people with whom
I will always disagree.
And they me.

Our divergence
is not petty
or simple, or small.
It reaches into the
very hearts of who we are
and, made though
we may be of the same
line of life,
the same starstuff,

the chasm of difference
between us is wide.
At times it seems
impassable.

But the astounding
reach of grace,
and care, and deep love,
is that we are wrapped up
in each other’s arms
and hearts, and stories,
across that seemingly
impossible divide.

Somehow by
divine physics,
the logic of God,
the space between us
is no space at all.

There are no bounds,
no limits,
to the hope
I find in this.
