In kindness I lost

Written 09/10/18

In kindness I lack delicacy

instead favoring aggressiveness

to address the wrongs within my midst

In kindness I found patience

to understand that which hurt

the world and inspired empathy

In kindness there were melodies

of broken wings, unloved children

and lost communities

In kindness I was lost

to the wisdom of grandmothers

whose time survived hatred undercover

In kindness i fought

to advocate in justice,

equality, and truths.

In kindness I am desperate to understand

of whom to soothe

As I learn the realty of my truth

Thank you for reading one of my poem/prose pieces. I hope to perform more of these online and at events, but for now if you’re interested in reading more original work please check out my website Jadedisland. I host poetry, short stories, and community excerpts there. My writing can be found on Medium and in the co-produced Anthology “Atrocious Cranberries”. Likes, shares, and comments appreciated.
