Seeing another community builder go

Makes me just shake my head

How could it be

“no”

/

Disbelief

That one could take her own life

/

With so much community around them

To help cope with the strife

/

Suffering so internal

No external force could solve

/

A loneliness

Hidden underneath smiles

A creative energy

That could not be withdrawn

/

Surrounded by community

We cannot escape ourselves

/

When it comes down to it

Maybe that’s all we have

/

We can build communities here and there and everywhere

But the community of one

With our self

Is the greatest challenge

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
