A body feels and responds is fair
A mind thinks & thinks until despair
All natural and human, nothing to be scared
Where the differences started and dared
Is in the irony that our essence is touched
By the shenanigans of the divisible sum crushed
Of a belief that strife is our nature
In passing of time it dressed itself as the future
Yet the reality is nothing more or nothing less
It can’t be subtracted or added into that mess
The infinity and purity in the silence of who we are
Is more than more could ever be whether too near or far
The body and mind survives that’s understood
As struggle, fragility and division is what’s under the hood
Yet the truth lies in a we and unity that thrives
Because it doesn’t have any other lives
But in its essence it’s sufficient and pleasant
From surviving to thriving our story is ever present.
Neither truth will diminish over time or fail
The fact is that one doesn’t have to prevail
To set the thriving free and out of the clutches
Of the surviving that keeps trying to be.
