The Great Divide

There is a Great Divide  
 defined differently  
by each personality;
 
  it can be seen as black  
  or perhaps Palestinian  
 
So narrow the Divide  
 it can close unto death  
  before widening  
 
  to accept difference;  
 
  wearies of itself;  
   loses short-term memory  
 
Remembers younger days  
  playground antics  
    void of color and race  
 
Sometimes it stands guard  
  to the entry  
   of the heart;  
 
   where it doesn't stand  
    a chance of forgiveness  
      or building a bridge  
 
This great Divide  
  grows in us all;
   unless we choose Love  
 
   to prune  
     its cancerous void
