COUNTERACTING KINDNESS… a poem

woman placing duct tape on her mouth

Calibrate this silence in my mind so I can hear

There’s so much in the world distracting me

What of all the plans we made

It always seemed so clear

Now, nothing’s making sense – just rambling

close up photography of rainbow rays on eye

These eyes no longer focus on what’s important in my life

Pollution to my retinas cause me stress

Lessons once were learned

But now elongate in their strife

I wake up every morning – a new mess

silhouette man looking at the sky

To touch the sweet horizon would be heaven on this plane

Kinship in its purest shape and form

But how do we recover

When you won’t even say my name

Counteracting kindness – now the norm
