The space between us
Is the space that we allow
When we hear a child of war's cry
Do we just hear it or do we feel it?
Does it inspire us to jump forth
Or does it tire the soul causing us to draw back.
Will the space between us be a screen?
Will the space between us be the location of countries?
The space between us is the difference between what the eye can see and what the soul can feel.
Strangers telling us stories of how they came to be, baring bits of their souls
but can we relate and if not do we try otherwise,
does there have to be an immediate connection something worth self reflection, or do we allow unrelatableness to be tension as big and loud as mountains we cannot move... Do any of us approve?
Will we allow our minds to take us away
From a memory full or cringe or emotional hurt
Because we will not allow it to impact us
Because do not want it to hurt us
Because what we see is a world of mistrust
We want nothing to do with
So we allow space between us
Building a translucent wall of silence
Of silence... in words
