More

More than
I see you
They said, color in
Your questions with me.
More than
I hear you, they said
Teach me your song and I will
Help you carry its weight.
More than
There is a place for you
They said we
Will move the boundaries, the borders, the bonds.
Instead of
Walk with me
They said
Nothing, just
Cried with me
Raged with me
Danced and spun and
Sang with me.
More than
I must carry
A thousand stories
They showed me
Community.
