White turtle doves

across electric wires

underneath the earth

cracks and conspires

to make sense

of how stainless creatures 

can roam unaffected 

whilst the world 

burns and forests

are neglected,

when will we think 

of creatures other 

that ourselves?

when did we become 

less than earth’s

caretakers?


I pray for those that lack empathy. I pray that people learn that empathy, is an emotion of the spirit. It can’t be taught, or manipulated. I pray for a time when empathy is no longer performative, but genuine. When emotions aren’t taken for granted, and when life becomes sacred.
