I sit in total silence, trying not to speak. For if I spoke my mind right now my words would appear too weak. For their argument has grown and no words could make it right. I think the best thing I could do is let them sleep on it this night. They love each other more then words and I won't pick a side. I feel like sneaking off somewhere and find a place to hide. I love them both so very much I hate to see them this way. If only they could go off to bed and wait for the light of day. Their problems are normal problems they happen to everyone. Just tackle them together, do the work and try to make it fun. I try not to catch their attention and have their anger aimed at me but I can't sit silent any longer what will be will have to be. I stood up with all my conviction and told them carefully. This fight has gone on long enough and now you'll listen to me. I love you both and you're both right but both of you are only 10. So get you're butts to bed you can get up early and do it all again. The world's growing more polarized, divisions widening in every way. If we just did the work and quit procrastinating we could make that brand new day.
