she holds tension

a poem to honor Bertha Nibigira…a new friend who i had the chance to meet at a recent Undivided workshop sponsored by The District Church

Bertha, it is in your depth and gift of seeing both sides that inspires us all to look within for places we can grow…

she holds tension

that is her

blessed with an
enormous capacity
to hold two views
to hold two sides
in a way
that opens up
new perspective
she is always perceptive
building bridges
and breaking down walls
so we don’t become
at odds
because it is when we are at odds…
