people

Standard

i see now

there was so much that i wanted

that i reached for it all and my heart broke

in the reaching, as my arms extended,

i found myself unable to defend myself.

they touched parts i

could not protect.

oh god

why did you choose to use

people

why did you make us so

vulnerable

why do you let others

stand in your shapes

speak as your voice

why do they have that power?

from Stumbling Toward Faith, Renee Altson
