HOPE, how come you into being?
TRUST, how come you into being?
CARING, how come you into being?
COMMITMENT, how come you into being?
SACRIFICE, how come you into being?
BELONGING, how come you into being?
HURT, how come you into being?
ANGER, how come you into being?
HATE, how come you into being?
BETRAYAL, how come you into being?
GUILT, how come you into being?

A despairing distant HOPE,
how come you into being?

We humans, we,
we sally to and fro.
Our emotions follow dutifully.
A mystery we remain,
unto ourselves and
to our fellows.

Look to HURT, I think.
It holds the key.
Avoid and quell the HURT
within ourselves, yes.
But, within all others, too.
No one has protection sure.
And, this house we share
is not so very large,
has not so many corners
within which we can HIDE.
