Each Of Us

I think that the world

Would seem very different,

If we consciously considered

that every person suffers

and grapples

with the pain of existence,

with loss,

with heartache,

with others,

with themselves,

That if we were to be conscious of this,

before opening our mouths,

before taking that step,

before shutting that door,

before dimming that light,

the world would be

a much kinder place
