All We Need Is...

I search for you
On a thousand faces
Caressing the marks of time
And pain

Within the places that have
Slipped through the cracks
Forever hiding in shame

I reach for you
With constant embraces
Examining the souls
Of the sad

There
You can be harvested
Polished and glorious
Waiting to be recognized

... and applied

Because you reside
In all the races
Within all aspects
Of life

Dana

    1. Thank you Claudia!! Yes, we often keep our eyes closed to the things we should see and we see the things we shouldn't.

    1. It does hold some spirituality for me as well... an aspect of it that we don't pay nearly enough attention too. Thank you Brian!

  6. There's a string of universality in us all that connect and challenges us to see beyond prejudices. Well penned capture here :)
