i am here as you are here

It is a strength

When the world compells you

To bare your teeth

To burn without caring

What feeds the flames

Running out of cheeks

To turn

And the ruins of the world

That you lived in

Are poor shelter

But to rebuild

To see another’s pain

And to reach out

To remember the message

That all faiths can be

Reduced to

‘Be Pleasant’

We all wear the same

Expressions beneath

The bland masks of ego

We all hurt

And in that levity

Where the pain bites deep

Bites last

We find that our hands

Are not fists

Simply looking

To be held

I am here

As you are

So why spend that time

In hate?
