Note To The World At Large
It is my wish that this poem
might give you a moment
of pause, of connection.
Not that it be a vital sign
of gravest importance, or carry
you away on wings of rapture.
We live in a broken world.
Many of us own holes in our souls
and lack knowledge of how to mend them.
This little speech can’t stitch together
all that has been stripped from our sense
of rightness and knowing.
Though even our names may no
longer be of much value, I want
you to know that in this moment
I cherish the fact
that you are alive,
Elizabeth Crawford 10/5/14
