Grounding Tension

Thomas Provençal


Grounding tension 

by Thomas Provençal

When society is kidnapped 

and fed ideas of fear 

we scuttle for security 

motivationally unclear. 

Revealing truth can ostracize 

a writer from their tribe 

for truth is multifaceted 

single versions can’t describe. 

There’s bound to be some conflict 

when opinions disagree 

with rancour in the writing 

offered to community. 

Polite and friendly manners 

with inclusion all around 

will bring us back to normal, 

reconnect us to the ground.  

from the heart
