Here, why?

Are we so afraid of ourselves?

Am I not you?

Are you not me?

We breathe as one;

Smog and mountain air

Tear at our lungs

And remind us that we are alive.

We slumber, we awaken

We hunger and thirst;

I see my need reflected in

The whites of your eyes

Rolled back like the clouds

To expose a naked sky.

Our feet crunch the same earth

Fallen leaves and asphalt,

Our hands feel the same skin

For I am one with you – Here.

Why are we so afraid of ourselves?

Life's a party in a sunflower field. Even when we wilt, we are beautiful to behold.
