HUMAN

I love you as a human.

Not for what you can give to me,
not for what I can take from you.

I love you as a human.

For the life of smiles
you bring into this world
at this time.

For all of your pain
maiming you inside.

For some reason I can feel your pain
so much of the time.

Probably because that pain is mine.

So I have loved it

smothered it in self-acceptance
and independence,

drenched it in the belief
of my dreams.

For that reason
there is a lot of room in
me,

for that reason
there is only positive
movement.

For that reason
I love you as a human.
