“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”


Holding my Family
Watching them smile
Holding them tighter
Seeing them cry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hugs of hellos and hugs of good byes
Then the special hugs when there was no reason why
Holding a body still warm
While someone gently tugs on my arm
“I'm so sorry for your loss” they say
“let me know what you need ok?”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well I need them back to stop
My pain. To see them again , there’d be no
greater gain.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Until then to heal with the hurt
Raised lines hide under the sleeves of my shirt
How I long to use them to deal with my joy
Instead of my pain, like some emo kids toy.
