Portfolio of Hope

We’re told to conceal
our bodies-
the vessel of our soul,
the very thing that powers us through life,
the very thing that powers all life-
“Mother Earth”=

they want us.

When they want us
we’re fair game-
we’re “there’s for the taking”,
for them to dismiss
as nothing more than “pretty”
as if any of that even matters,
as if any of that could possibly matter
when, within us, there is everything:

All the stars in the galaxy,
all the waves in the sea,
all the people in the world-

and yet, we are all reduced

to nothing.
