Need to Relate

I feel a need to relate,

that warm human bond I yearn to create.

Connections lost and severed,

could be the force that binds us forever.

No matter the race, no matter the land,

the need to connect is at its grandest stand.

Darkness surrounds us, despair is deep,

but when we come together, we laugh, we weep.

We all have a real need to relate,

Sometimes it’s not easy

But it’s the only way to create

a space where our hearts can fully open.

Where we can grow and love and never be broken.
