The Bench

ms college study area march

The bench is empty

on this beautiful day

no one has the courage

to sit on it and say


Life is difficult

there are days to take a stand

sing a different melody

be on the grandstand


The trees, birds, and plants

gather each day to dance

occasionally alone

sometimes together in a trance


In these difficult days

its important to remember

all souls present in this life

 are a family member


Standing strong

giving a helping hand

part of a universal structure

together an elastic band


Meditation over

hug someone today

it takes courage to sit on the bench

be yourself this day
