We Need To

Featured Artwork: Kate Osmond


We must

Invigorate therapy

We must structure

A home




As the world ages

So do we


And more hearts fracture;

Others deprived 

Of the key


And more solemnness

Fills wells

Of our eyes



By stigma

Or a person to confide in


And we need to accord a hand

To people

Incarcerated in pain

They can’t command


And we need to reach out


With our smiles

To fortify our bonds 

And replenish our lives


For life,

It is cruel

But we can redeem its beauty

With our light


Emerging from the silhouettes

Of those forsaken 

And companionless nights
