You know what, let’s be those people who care, the kind who doesn’t shy away from the idea of intimacy nor hesitate to love unconditionally. Let’s be the kind who stays a while longer, to be the shoulder for anybody who seeks one, a home for anybody who needs one. To be that person who stays behind after a party to help the host clean up. someone who shows up for the people who feel unseen. Let you and me be the kind who believe, believe that kindness and empathy is not dead, in the goodness of the world. We shall be the people who take risks and refuse to hide away in the darkness. To be the ones to love them, who hate us.
Maybe it’ll take us everything to not be hardened in a world which can be pretty unfair. To be through so much at the hands of others and still choose to care and love. But Damn, are we strong.
And as Oscar Wilde once said, “it takes great courage to see the world in all its tainted glory and still to love it”.
