PLAYGROUND

It still astonishes me to this day

What happens when

Our words learn to play

 

When our minds begin to shake

And structures begin to break

 

When our eyes begin to feel

Our layers begin to peel

 

When our hearts slowly thump

Our words no longer bump

 

They take each other’s hands

We start to understand

 

It still astonishes me to this day

What happens when

‘We’ is no longer ‘they’
