Can you stop?

Sometimes life has you

spinning

just to keep up

always one step

behind

one moment

too late

 

Even the wind

laughs knowingly at your

addiction to speed

 

 

you will never catch up

 

Don’t look

your eyes

cover them

 

Don’t listen

your ears

cover them

 

Don’t breath

Don’t move

 

Just sit

and

for one

moment

 

Just Be

A Generation Disappointed

A generation

disappointed

looking for

someone 

to

blame

torches lit

fear

fanning the flames

hatred woven

within the

lies

flying past

you

be careful

not to breath them in

Because you see

It wasn’t me

It wasn’t you

It wasn’t them

We came here

together

we cannot

leave

alone

goodness, hospitality, humanity

What is kindness?

Does it even exist anymore?

I think

I saw some kindness 

once

but, I can’t be sure.

What does it look like?

Is it religion?

Is it faith?

Maybe it is much

simpler

than that.

If you looked for it

everyday

all day

how much would you

find?

 

Is it too

late

for me

or

you

 

Maybe if we can

find some

hope 

it will

lead us

to

kindness.

Will you recognize it?
