Are We? - Poem by Lauren B Called

The fields wave like a million hands
as each blade in it's own turn collapses
under the wind
are we strengthened the same way in beauty
to God's eyes
when we are on our knees
and he restores us again to our feet
closer to me, I see so many things I used to care about
but have withered without the attention of
a loving hand
are we not the same? , while our bodies may go on,
can our spirits decay from lack of our needs
no human cushion, no care or comfort
souls scream the written word is not enough
though with it we communicate and share
it's not the same as arms around you full of love
so we wither, cease to thrive
we exist, but we're not alive
only in the way a garden space goes unused
what little that grows
is overtaken by weeds and thorns
instead of overflowing with what it was meant to
no hands to hold, no lips to kiss
sometimes things go so deep
they can only be comforted by this
