Around Us.

The world around us,

Cruel and unbending,

But with you I feel safe.

The people around us,

False and unfriendly,

But with you I no longer care.

The pain around us,

Cold and never-ending,

But with you it is no more.

The fear around us,

Dark and condescending,

But with you I don't fear anymore.

 

N.Sexton

The End
