NEED


NEED

Need is strange

when hurt all around

we all went

through stuff

during that hell

some of us

recover easier

than others

we all lost

in that mess

and we are still

going through

things

that challenge

every part of

our being

its a fact

years

time

all of it

everyone

I am no exception

no better

or worse

with all our

human faults

and

strengths

each day

a will power

of massive

supernova

magnitudes

get us through

from the doors

opened

and doors closed

to those

that lay

somewhere in between

we all have

a right to be

who we are

and express it

without

judgements

or

cruelty

we don't always

get these things

and so

we have to

walk

stronger

in our beliefs

and

convictions

never wavering

to who we are

turn our

faults

into

assets

so humanity

can find

some type

of level grounded

peace

and not

keep killing each

other

over fears

for it boils down

to that

fear

our greatest

enemy

clouds all the

good

in us all

hindering

trust

and faith

warping

the truths

into

falsities

we all need

to overcome

our basic

animal instincts

to

not just

survive

but live

and let live

the depth

of hurt

it brings

turns

my heart

to stone

cold

and

that is

something

I never

ever thought

I could

be

this world

is far

from easy

and encompasses

all

rich or poor

alike

for

color

should not

stand for

the

harsh

realities

that

centuries

creates

for hate

is hate

and harsh

and wrong

always wrong

we all know our

breaking points

and limits

as we learn

yet some

still go the

narrow way

the higher

pathways

are far far from

easy

and danger

follows us

because

we choose to

stand out

and speak

up

there is a saying

change the

world we want to see

I can't

think of anything

more powerful

than that

justice is

ran away

hiding in some

edges of the world

as fear grows

and darkness

takes over

let the fire

in us all

shine the light

we so

need to be

so somehow

we can

get along

for sensing

the destruction

is a massive

ache

that saps

the earth

saps life

my anima

and

all our anima

carrying the

sadness

within

like a blanket

to endure

this

that is here

in hopes

we all find

a way

to be better

in the long run

it is possible

I have to keep

that thought

quench our

darker sides

and let the

lighter sides

begin to rule

yet sometimes

I know

it requires

the big stick

to make a point

not letting it

get out of hand

is the key

for as one important

person FDR said

all we have

to fear

is fear itself

he was so right

and

is still so right

can we

let love

in
