Who Are You ?

Who Area You?

How can you heal
from the abuse
permeating your Soul

of Trusted Ones'


Of safety within

a Blurry
Distant Cloud
Now - where the Hurt
comes Instead

Myths about you

Where -
Your People
Those You Love Deeply

are said to be:

Not Good People
-- as You Know They Are

So, you are Responsible
for the Myths
the Craziness
of Others

at the Same Time
You Must Struggle
with the Insanity Itself
Digging Inside

Who Are You?
- an Iraqi - in an insane world
- a Palestinian - trying to cope
- a Person of Color - in a White World
- a Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Transgendered one in a land foreign to whom one is
- or Many Others
- or Several of these - Together

I probably don't Know You.
Will I listen?
Can I hear?

You are Important !
You Do Matter !

I hope that I will See
and be an Ally
if Not
a Friend
