Friendship

Love

Ignoring superficial definitions of the way to be

And losing.

A person is a self-preserver

Not able to see beyond their own skin.

To breath in salvation through open arms

Arms of steel that get bent

From the strength of everyone

Practicing their own way of life.

Difference.

Climbing walls built on gleaned knowledge

Only known by them.

That’s not your own.
