Maybe I’m naive

to the sleights I receive.

But, it’s my belief

that all of us just want a reprieve.

Through this will and thought,

I see no reason we should have fought.

As I need others, they need me.

I don’t see their actions as a slight,

or that they wish a fight.

I see fear and pain -

feelings they needed to drain.

So, hurt me they might,

but all I see is the pain we all fight.

In this light

I don’t think it’s naive

that I see no sleight.

This is what I believe:

we all just want a reprieve.
