Attractive is not talking, for me.
It is keeping silent, without hostility.
Friendly is not talking, for me.
It is listening, with empathy.
Peaceful is not talking, for me.
It is being alone, without loneliness.
Activity is not action, for me.
It is thinking bold thoughts.
So, where does this take me?
Into a world full of dreams.
A world on the brink of something big,
Shaking the foundations
Of what we call normal.
Lifting up those
Who have been forgotten.
Loving the unlovable.
Caring about the underprivileged,
Who have a lot to give.
The disabled who may be quite able,
In their own way.
Recognizing the quiet voices,
Who deserve to be heard.
Wouldn’t the world
Be a better place for it?
I think so.
