Bridging the gap by Christine Swiderski

Unique  substance 
Entrances  the  unsuspecting 
Those  who  watch 
Will be  salivating 
Hoping  for  a  change 
Not the  illusion 
Hope  is dashed by lack
Integrity  when  no one  sees 
Nor hears lack of  diversity 
In the  mirror  of light
Does  truth glare
Yet many  seem unaware 
Is this just  a  phase?
Or have we passed another  gate ?
Hate and confusion  reside
Where truth conveniently  hides.
