Faceless Heart

Can I sincerely hold others in pain

Without bringing me in?

Can I be part of the joy and pain of others

Without crossing in?

Can I truly listen to the suffering

Standing outside looking in?

Inside these surrounding walls of silos

Constructed in carefully placed rows,

Is not my joy and pain

The same as the others?

We need to work together

Because our liberation is tied with each other

But why does my face interfere

In tenderly reaching out and touching the other?

Behind these rows of safety

Is hidden the true beauty.

Help me break these walls of false security

So I can stumble to that place of unity.

Under the many masks of humanity

Is the one true face of the Almighty.

A ‘Faceless Heart’ has to be my identity

To recognize the work of that beauty

With Love and Respect
