 I have seen so much suffering-
My cruel heart breaks-
Coupled to my own, impotent anguish,
I cry, I blush
At this world's shame-
this eternity of pain
in which, I, we all must remain...
If there is hope...
it rests
in evanescent moments
of collective clarity of vision
of each other's pain and joy...
We may recapture the tender uncertainty
of the ancient primate troop
hinged to the reality
that happiness lies in minion.
This, is my opinion.
Sorrow is singular-
Empathy, circular.
