In our world,
we hang by a string,
only that, a thread of despair,
measures our resilience, fortitude, confidence.
Yet every day,
with each waking hour,
when we see a smile,
without ever knowing what created that
we simply walk away,
when we see tears, that don’t get in our way,
is a sense of worth, a seeming reality,
… enough to get us all to the other side.
