Faulty Thinking

Faulty Thinking

The fault line…
where the Earth cracks,
where continental plates
grind, rub, slip, climb, and sink,
mountains and canyons are born,
insurmountable barriers are created,
chasms plunge beyond imagining.

The fault line…
blame is placed, fingers point
teeth grind, hands clench,
whose fault is it?
Yours? Do you admit it?
Where do you draw the line
at someone else’s faults?

Don’t draw it too deep,
you might
