Stare

You may not relate

to my existence

composed with

unfamiliar elements

I only grieve

for the comfort

somehow found in ignorance

 

Without the lonely

I might have breathed

out more light

Yet the unknown

are rarely bestowed

kindness without fearful hesitation

or disbelief life is not such a fight

 

I am disheartened how humanity

are not always willing

to carry on together

whether hearts are open

or gifts are evident and rare

they remain stagnant and stare…
