Literature #2

Chasms and Bridges


Whether dancing the circle
or sitting in the pews,
the world is full of wonder
and knee-jerk news.

For those full of spite
and woeful complaining,
the world is full of darkness;
no hope remaining.

Diversity spawns
attacking spasms,
elevating hate
and deepening the chasms.

You are who you are,
smart as a fox;
why confine yourself
to a bleak little box?

For those full of love
and compassion caring,
the world is full of brightness
and warmth in sharing.

Diversity spawns
a chance to build bridges,
elevating love
and life privileges.

You are who you are,
smart as a fox;
expressing yourself,
you're out of that box!

We can make this world
a beautiful place
if we toss away frowns
and put smiles on our face.

Abolish that burden
of complaints you've been lugging;
begin building bridges
and get used to hugging!

This poem is saying that if you're a happy person and always positive then the world will be full of surprises for you, but if you're the complaining type and you're negative, then the world will be full of darkness for you.  It is also saying that you are who you are and you can't really change that, so you should just be yourself and not try to be someone else that you're not. Then again it says that the earth is full of brightness and warmth for those full of love and compassion, and that if you are expressing yourself, then you are out of the "box" of your identity. We can make this world a better place if everyone is simply smiling without frowns, and get over all of your problems and stop complaining. I really liked this poem because it sends a really positive message. Everyone should be happy and be themselves to make themselves happy, not anyone else. I guess this is related to the Buried Life because the guys really are living life to the fullest and being themselves; they're making themselves happy by accomplishing their utmost desires before they die.
