Treasure Island

Remove Your Mask


I've seen many faces
Fed many birds
Talked to dogs

They all taught me 
That we're one in spirit-
Connected -
However, masked by 
Indifference

    Nicely written. We give to all of these beautiful creatures yet they ask so little. Oh... if only we could appreciate each other as these do. Thank You Benjamin (Report) Reply
