People are
what build us,
mold us,
shape our beings
into being.
Their love lifts
and stabilizes
and constructs
our true selves.
We cannot create
capacious hearts
with sour glances
and upturned faces.
We must not
shut the doors
of our weary minds
and instead
light the path
to knowing.
When we love,
we must shout it.
When we need,
we must ask for it.
When we ache,
we must feel comforted.
We cannot close
our souls
to the goodness
in the world
or we will be lost
to all the bad.
