The Real Tenderness

It doesn’t matter

what you see before you,

what matters

is what you see within yourself,

and how you bring that into the world.

Offer the bounty of your heart

to the scarcity of these conditions,

the fullness of your lungs

into cavities of hopelessness...

Leave roots and seeds in the homes and hearts of those who have long suffered from the famine of kindness.

See, from the inside out,

this life

not as it is,

but as it could be,

given your tenderness.
