Our world wobbles on its human-made axis of insanity and is always one blindfolded step from ruin:
pandemics, poverty, wars, and racism.
Countless beings wail in the key of pain, unable to retune themselves to ease.
Certain nights, the moon is just a trick of light;
one evening, it resembles a diamond, the next night, a dagger.
And so we strive to become one another’s steady shine,
through light and dark, rise and fall, song and smoke.
