What darkness is this,
Neighbour, friend,
That shrouds your worth
From my sight?
What preoccupying fog
Leaves me to stumble
Against you, bruising
And cursing this rude
Encounter of contrary souls?

What light will show,
Sister, brother,
This stone to be the pearl
Of great price?
In what freedom might
I walk, if your goodness
Be my gaze, your crazy
My lesson, your story
My life, your humanity divine?
