yet eager to learn more;
and smiles mean the world to us,
as loneliness can be so pervasive.
unnerved by the fear and anxiety
of what we cannot move with our hands;
but we are not vile,
nor do we intend malice.
we are only trying to make some sense of
not selfish or filled with greed;
we are hopeless because we do not
have enough to give.
people who like to see the sunrise,
especially with another grateful face.
dreaming of a day when we can see more
happiness around us,
and we even dream of the happiness
we cannot see.
you, and the barista, and the teacher,
and we are people who love to love.
people who haven’t taken no for an answer.
