It Is There That I Belong

when I walk toward the line
of humanity that forms each day,
hands held out to grasp love,
I look for the space created
by hate and arrogance,
the space that separates
one from another,
leaving some to stand as if alone –
it is there that I belong

shoulder to shoulder
with the lonely, the outcast,
the broken, the judged,
and the downtrodden,
I choose to stand in that gap –
for it is there that I belong

it is there I find myself,
as I have been before
,
and yea, might someday
be again
