A wound in the foundation

This crack
in the foundation of the earth,
in the foundation of our being;
this arbitrary separation --
can it be healed?
Or does it go too deep?
Was there ever a time
when it did not exist?
Can we be whole again,
or are we forever doomed
to poke at this,
to widen the rift
with the picks and shovels
of our angry thoughts and opinions?
Help us to reach across the gap
and feel the solid rock
from which we each are made.
