Gently

It began as

a hint of self-love,

a quiet prayer

passed gently

by one or two

who dared

to risk dwelling

in unexplored places

within the heart.

It continued on

as compassion —

carried carefully

by those who had

discovered,

in their own way,

the pain

and beauty

in holding

a separate perspective

and set of original

experiences

that couldn’t be

shared,

not really —

and the tenderness

in reaching

from this place.
