On May 22nd you grew two feathery wings.

We were clueless, far away, safe, dry.

There were seeds of hope but they were never planted,

because they were shadowed by a tree of worry.

Instead of black, I stood in pink.

Some days I want to bury myself in sand,

Or to climb a tree and never come down.

All man has is hand and foot;

a heart of granite, tears like the Ganges.

We are small.

What gets burnt does not grow back.
