In crises our nature is revealed

The frailty of humanity,
seeing you lying there.

Knocked down off of your scooter
to the road,
the vulnerability of a human life
layed bear.

The police woman is by your side now.
Kneeling over you.
Her hand in yours.

Whispering hope and courage into your ear

Whispering words
only angels speak.

In crises, the beauty of
human fragility
and human kindness
is revealed.

Only drips in the eyes hint
at the well that
has been struck
within me.
Well of humility.
