Privileges

What would you like now? Water or food? Water. Water or shelter? Water. Water or money? Money. Money or security? Some folks live entirely for this world, Then there are those who can only live for the next.

Have you seen

How ants protect their nest? They defend it from predators Infinitely larger than them. They were protecting our children Whose mother gave them up. Covering them. May they be reunited.

Empathy

It’s not when you’re already seeing the tears, Rather the moments before; When they’re taking their time, Trying to be strong for themselves. And then you understand better what they might feel.
