The Chasm

There’s this chasm

Right down the middle

Of the human experience.

We are

Oxymorons

Personified.

Delicacy and ferocity.

Pride and humility.

Intelligence and ignorance.

All encased

Within a meaningless shell

The divide,

It makes us vulnerable.

The divide,

It makes us strong.

Beautiful creatures,

We are.

…and ugly, too.

Fascinatingly mundane.

Collectively unique.
