Upliftment*

Man.
The animal that walks by himself
Cogitating
Contemplating
Problem solving
Innovating

Man.
The child so well concealed
Wandering thoughts no longer revealed
The dusty library of youth
Reference to uniquely personal truth

Man…
A vexed and vulnerable soul
Made wise by the things he may not control,
The simple wit to notice need
A route by which he may proceed

Man,
A seeker of companionship
A partner needing partnership
A single soul with an open heart
Waiting in time to play his part

Man-
Who may not walk away,
Uncertain of the part he’ll play,
Steps unknowing into the breach
Connecting with souls beyond their reach-
