Truth

Everything flies
away eventually

a finite succession
of crystalline
moments in time
are all that we
really have here

choices allow us
to shape each of them before
they are frozen in form

In this moment
I choose to be grateful,
happy and to be kind to you

I will never understand
your struggles and
mine you can never know

not hollow kindness
born of pity
from some bleeding heart

but honest kindness
that comes from a place
of solemn respect
for a fellow traveler
whose twisted path
will eventually lead
them to the fringe
of same Truth.
