We Were We

So we begin: not you, nor I
but a duet of multiple hazards;
seeking refuge in not just a storm;
but a war.

Finally seeing we have to fight,
fight for what we need to be,
and fight for everything that we aim to achieve.

Nothing will ever be handed to us
and nothing we do will ever be good enough;
Found not by you, nor by mehowever, found in our single selves,
while the opposite struggles to let the other see.

When your world is less than kind,
Seeing becomes so hard
When you are found blind.

Perseverance is no longer enough
Being apart and so far from together;
Co-existing is more than too much.

This duet is becoming out of my range
and the pitch is more noise than song…

However, I am still here
humming along,
because what my heart says matters more.

I remember the summer
when there was so war,
only a storm… and we…

We were we.

Special thanks to Joseph K. for helping me get a certian part right.
