Conversation

It starts off shallow;
Sports, clothes, weather.

So oft stays there, like
We don't know better.

Conversation.

It has such power,
It can go deeper.

Raise the dead, call out
The fool; arise, Sleeper! 

Conversation.

What things be deeper?
Truth, politics, love.

Religion, the
God of  heav'n above.

Conversation.

We can approach life
Hiding from friction,

Or we can embrace
it, avoid fiction.

Conversation.

Differences, real
Stories, hurt, hardship.

Exploring these with
Words, call it friendship.

Conversation.

Too oft we waste it,
Banality trod.

This gift we're giv'n
From a speaking God.

Conversation.
