to know

to know the need of others
can be a hard thing

we let the disconnect linger
even while they linger in our thoughts

it takes bravery to recognize
that we need them, too
that we need to reach out
to touch, to connect

to not get lost in contemplation
of how to be a part of the world

and to just
be in it.
