People

No-they don’t forget.
It’s just that
they procrastinate
remembrances.

No-they aren’t selfish.
It’s just that
they apprehend
sharing.

No-they aren’t unkind.
It’s just that
they are timid
of benevolence.

No-they aren’t proud.
It’s just that
humility
is such a challenge
to endure.

No-they aren’t gullible.
It’s just that
they have a thing
for possibilities;
and hope
is their fetish.

No-they aren’t narcissistic.
It’s just that
they take pride
in what they do
and zealous of
what they
dream
to be doing.

No-they aren’t idiots.
It’s just that
the course of
learning
takes a lifetime
to earn
wisdom.

No-they aren’t cold.
It’s just hat
love
has many faces
and colors
that confuse them.






Yes–People,
more than understanding the complexities
and tolerance of ironies
of their being,
their souls cry
for your
compassion,
People.















Thank you, People: Thank you very much for your support! I am humbled and encouraged as always by your appreciation and generosity. A blessed weekend to us, all.

Me Ke Aloha,
Aina
