when we're afraid

FREE WRITING

it's a lovely time when it is warm outside. it warms our hearts, and we feel like singing. there is a texture about warm air. it oppresses sound; we cannot sing, blessed with the extraordinary torturous talent of understanding. have you ever been brought to your knees?

the word "no," out of context, means nothing at all. a denial, a rejection, a casual refusal, said many times a day. for even when we do not vocalize, voice "no" into the...

secretive people

if i could count to a million on one hand
it could only be the joined hands
of one hundred thousand children
reaching small fingers up into the air
trying to catch clouds.

a shadow lying over those features you resist unveiling,
would you rightly hide an eye, steal value from your sight? would you rightly cover your mouth, muffle your words, conceal their worth?

how could you rightly hide?
for it is a crime to exist in silence,
veil the world of what we can, the face of what we...
