To be truly seen

Perhaps it is time to stop

doing all that doesn’t fill a shoe box

in significance.

 

Perhaps the mental illness

is one of the society

as serious as climate change,

subtle and invisible

slowly embracing everyone

at a different pace.

Perhaps it is time
to stop everything else that is in motion
and sit facing one another
with each person who has touched our lives
and whose lives we’ve touched
near and distant
so that we deeply and openly
hear, listen and speak
until there is nothing left to say
until there is nothing left to hear.

Perhaps it is time

to look deep into each of our ‘souls’

and see the individual pains

the individual yearnings

the rights and the wrongs

and move past beyond them

into the land of understanding.

Perhaps then

deep healing can take place for all

beyond what we may deem necessary

at first glance

yet know better.
