More Meaning

     Awoken by thoughts
            or a voice shouting on the street below
        or
               nothing

     3 a.m. or later
              window open    comfortably cool

this June rain makes more of an impression
   in isolation
                               silence challenges
both history and the future
   our daily lives and routines

   only a reminder
                   humans need humans

         Craving physical contact
we all need   friendship    security
compassion  and  hope

 We need more meaning on
        how we really spend our lives

The indisputable truth:
        All of us have sinned

Now we realize everyone needs
         Community

crisis or chaos
    we are denied

       guilt will find a place to rest

                  how do you sleep at night?
