Looking through this
emptying glass. Iím aware
how dangerous a business
this is - being human.
I wonder
will we destroy ourselves,
but I know that beyond
all the greed and jealously
and hate that sits in us all
from time to time,
there
is a strand of love and fear
that knits through,
and continually saves us.
