This difference exists

1.
all that makes us
sink beneath the
weight of simply
being
                              shed
              float
see this?
itʼ  s all we need

 

2.
in the darkness
we search for a
pinprick of light
we follow the stars
until we find the moon
we sit and watch it

rise
               fall

itʼ  s impossible to
feel alone
even when we
feel so small

 

3.
do dream
chase tails of light
through landscapes
dotted with
a future free from

this

difference

exists

embrace the space
in which we
the “other”

live (love)
