Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

...maybe we need to change...
How is it, that we can look into another’s life;
In a way that we see the pain and suffering of theirs as our own.
We feel the hunger turn to starvation in our bellies;
The guilt turn to paranoia in our gut;
The sickness turn to death in our bones.
And then before we finally experience death,
We pull away from the feeling;
From our ability to help.
Shoving the thoughts and feelings away from our minds,
As if a nightmare- never to be remembered again.
