I sit in silence, sometimes wondering
How easy it is for me to love
To show care
Affection, and most of all consideration
My path to spirituality and love has been so easy.
Yet you struggle to show kindness as part of a basic human attribute
I sit in silence, wondering
How so many people in this country, can’t
Even if they tried to.
Understand compassion and show care, empathy
To everyone around them
Why this country can’t.
all we do is want to compete.
With each other. and ourselves.
All we want to do is make more money.
Enjoy your money more.
To your neighbors, our neighbors
Who should be our friends and not our foe
Our neighbors who can help.
And we continue to treat each other with blatant distance
Treat our friends, family, our loves
With the greatest disregard.
This country, I hate saying “we” because I am not with you.
I am just me, alone, a stranger
In this country
Who continues to
and never with me.
I hope I don’t become one with them.
I hope the wounds and scars they have given me
will not distance me from love and I will continue my path to being closer to a higher power.
