Hope in the balance

Almost by chance
direction emerges
for generating harmonious inclusivity
Judge kindly
lest man’s nature
opens past’s quickly resolved struggles
to unite vengeful warring xenophobes
yielding zeal

    You are a master of the ABCs! Another wonderful one, and I don't know how you do it. I really love the second to the last line "to unite vengeful warring xenophobes"... wonderful image and truly amazing! Thank you so very much for your encouraging words regarding my first fulton "Beach Banquet"...I truly appreciate it! ~Juliane

    Holy ABC's! Wow Nigel, absolutely the best of this form of poetry I have ever read. Usually with this form you know immediately what it is, but not with yours. Exceptional poem on it's own! Why am I not surprised? Yeah, your poetry rocks! Love, Shar

    Now try to say that 3 times fast! This is the first ABC I've noticed on The Soup. I would say this is next to impossible to write and make any sense. Good one! Love, BG
