our past interactions shape us
into who we are today.
mistrustful, scared, hurt,
and defensive, we cannot

knowing this we breathe deeply,
choose to lower our defenses,
and reach for the heart of another
in order to share life, and

there is so much beauty to be found
in this single act of love and kindness.
you free yourself and give others
hope and let them know that they can
