Poetry: To reach out

To reach out to where others are

We need to communicate

Within relationships

Within ourselves

With each other

With our God

To build the links

To and between the people


To and between the issues

That we dive deeper into

And draw others in

From the spaces they are in

Into an awareness of growth

To become who they/we are called to be
