Understanding…

Understanding…

Scouring the sands
for some sense
of dignity.

What’s left at an old, old age
where memory fails
more than it remembers?

Fear sensed, fear felt.

It’s empathy
that stirs patience and
reiteration, reminding and rewording.

Grace rises, grace succumbs.

Trust ensues
where safety lies.

Bitterness with ego,
bitterness with distrust.
