long division

I've been grieving a lot of things recently. Sometimes the music says more than I can say right now. Coexisting is hard enough, living at peace sometimes seems damn near impossible. I do what I can to live at peace because it's what God asks of me and because it's better for everyone that way, but damn does life get complicated.

Someone once told me that hurting people are the ones who hurt others the most and I can't help but wonder if it's true.

It's a long time coming,
It's a long way down,
It's long division,
Crack and divide.
This is a parting,
Some separation,
We lay in pieces,
Cracked to survive.
I'm not your villain,
Not your adversary,
I'm not your reason to crack and divide.
It's long division,
Crack and divide

well as I understand it everyone is hurting, it's part of the human condition. so not something to be overcome but rather care-fully lived through together, like a Mystery and not a puzzle/problem to be solved. dmf
