Built like a shard of ice
She grows taller in cold climes;
In environments hostile to
And envious of
Anything that breathes.
Hard flung words may try to break her
Howling winds will shake her strength,
But she is rigid and growing sharper,
Too spiky to think of bending.
With all the potential to break,
To crack, dissipate in the onslaught of storms
She screams into the avalanche of hate and says,
I am you,
And we are one,
We are one kind
All of us are lonely
All of us are hurting
Each of us doubt the other
Only feel our body’s pain
But when you cut me
You will be the one to bleed,
One day, when you learn to feel what matters.
It doesn't matter now.
Not today, and not tonight.
The Foxes are foraging in all force,
And they will not stop until they draw blood from ice.
