  • What Fills Us

    Isolation carves a rift
    That seeks correction
    In the form of the gift
    Of connection,
    A gift that we don’t often see
    Until it’s what we’ve lost,
    Carelessness and neglect the fee
    And solitude the cost.

    The seeds we once planted
    With kindness and care
    Were taken for granted
    More often than air.
    Yet after everything transpires,
    We can’t accept being alone.
    We give in to our desires
    To be more than on our own.

    No part of our humanity
    Is more true to our state
    Than our need for community,
    These bonds that we create.
    Loneliness creates a void
    That we attempt to fill
    With substances that have destroyed
    Those stronger than us, still
    Exchanging our time with another’s
    Shows us that the pull
    That builds community with others
    Is what will make us full .
