There is a world
on the other side,
where lack exists,
but it’s called abundance,
where false fear lives
only in the gaps of love,
and our primary purpose
is to string together
the connective fibers
that flow down our forearms
as blue rivers of courage,
flowing from my hand to yours,
and from yours to another.

Then, when connection
and honesty exist between
us, there is no between,
there is no gap, there
is no fear, there is only
abundant love.

The other side
is at our fingertips,
open your palms
toward one another and
we can cross over,
