Day 10: Too much

Today I will hide

From the pain of fearing what will happen once this reaches the camps

And the slums

And I don’t know if my heart can take the fear




While at the same time, we laughed

So freely we laughed and laughed

For what we laughed at left us free from all constraints and

We couldn’t help ourself if we wanted to



Both are true and

Both truths need holding


So close to my heart as to be swallowing it whole




To despair and to laugh in equal,

Free abandon;

Perhaps now I realise what it is to be human
