Kindness is Dying

 

inspired by the words of Charity Parkerson

*

if beauty slays

what might have been

the beast, then beauty

loses something greater

than itself

*

the battle starts with us

inside these bars of purity

nailed shut –

*

i can see a garden

built around the torn-up

earth, a barricade and

prison from diversity –

*

nothing lives

but weeds find holes,

*

they always do.
