Too bad


You often sit by yourself,
wondering and worrying
about all kinds of things,
thinking you’re all alone.

We’re with you
all day long, diligently
beating your heart,
greening the grass
that greets your feet,
feeding you air
and sunlight,
showering you
with little sparks
of life.

Too bad
you do not notice.

You’re so busy
sticking to your story
of broken home
and lost community

thirsty for support
but unable to feel our care
or take it in.

Let’s hope something
will some day
break the strange spell
which has you dying of thirst
by a fountain.
