Am I Safe

Am I safe?
My heart beats all
alone
in my chest,
Am I safe?
I don’t understand
the question.

I surrender.
Please, teach me to
accept
this suffering,
this samsara,
this
humanity.

Share my body,
spend some time inside
my skin
for a while.
When did we become so scared
that all this distance appeared
necessary?
When did being alone in a crowd
of strangers
become more appealing than
falling in love with
a tiny tribe?

Please,
let’s touch, and dance, and
Love.
What could possibly be
more important,
or more likely to break
these chains?
