I tried to unwrap a deep thought;
The kind that yells at you silently,
abruptly and honestly.
I wondered about all that is happening right now.
I explored all the what if questions.
They scared me at first.
Reality stepped up
and asked me a few questions
I could not dismiss.
Questions I knew I could not answer.
But, they opened my heart.
I know he is a human being,
not perfect by any measure. No one is perfect.
Then I wondered about this unique individual,
the self-proclaimed chosen one.
Does he sit alone somewhere and worry about life?
Does he cry in silence?
Who is it that really loves him?
Does he get scared?
When he is alone with only his conscience
does he forgive himself for the outrageous,
unbelievable, untruthful things he says.
My heart opened.
He is human.
I remembered scripture:
Then he says, “I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.”
I must believe that our humanity will prevail.
I must believe that this too shall pass.
I must believe that we are indeed all one.
We are all human;
We are one.
May God bless America.
