If I Could

I am unwillingly touched
By hushed loneliness hidden
In profundities of our

Naive hesitance to accept
Each other, favoring instead to
Conflate the burn of our

Sorrows with premeditated
Maxims advocating tendentious
Intents to suppress equal

Domain upon this earth and
I would abolish these burdens
For all humanity, if I could

But I am still entrapped by
Puerile deceits and cannot yet
Ascend Ten Mountains, so

I wait alone for other souls
Traversing this journey, and we
Will discover higher places

“We must not accept the proposition that a relationship with a government, political organization, religion, belief system, corporation, geographical border, or even family constitutes an irreducible primary. The irreducible primary is the human species, and this fact is firmly established by the unique composition and determinative influences of human beings relative to all that exists.”
