We Need To

We must

Invigorate therapy

We must structure

A home

 

Because…

 

As the world ages

So do we

 

And more hearts fracture;

Others deprived 

Of the key

 

And more solemnness

Fills wells

Of our eyes

 

Barricaded

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
