Breathing In These Times…

Breathing is hazardous…when the air is thick with extremism.

Can there not be a middle ground…to accommodate both points of view?

For Can’t we talk? Can’t we speak? Can’t we express?

Must winning be always at the expense of the other?

Is this how we have become?

And does Love even have a say….in this world today?

Must someone always have to pay?

If so, I don’t wish to stay…

Breathing has become hazardous…

Because we can’t even accommodate the exhalation..

..of another person’s way.
