You and I

DSCF9215

Imagine, for a small moment,
that it is not you here, them there,
that every time you meet the world
and find its lovely mosaic of beings,
you are coming upon yourself
in a new way, for the first time,
 
Imagine how haunted they are
by a past etched on their faces
and imagine caressing them,
saying, “It’s okay, I’m here
to tell you it’s not your fault,
you are worthy of forgiveness.”
 
Imagine saying, “I love you,”
to all those you come across,
and imagine how much you mean it
from the bottom of your heart,
and now, imagine: every single
one of these beings, is you.
