    Default You're Not Alone (Spoken Poem)

    Take my hand,
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you these two arms
    To be wrapped around you
    And soak you in warmth
    To chase away the chill
    That seeks to devour your light;
    Let them encase you
    In the comfort
    That not all people are here
    To harm you,
    That not all people see you
    From behind this veil of hate;
    Let them help
    To keep your power from
    From slowly leaking from your grasp
    As you begin to lose hope;
    Let them hold your breaking
    Soul together
    So the splintered shards
    Cannot pierce your heart
    And destroy the divine goodness
    That is you.
    Even as I break with you,
    My arms will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take my hand
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you these two ears
    To listen to your fears and pain
    As your country, co-workers, friends, and family
    Turn against you
    As thoughts of hate and revulsion
    Are revealed
    And acted upon;
    Let them acknowledge your existence,
    Your importance,
    Even as shouted voices
    Attempt to deny you both;
    Let them free your soul
    From the burdens of handling
    All that fear and pain
    In solitude;
    Let them hear your words
    Like a gift, an insight
    Into a world many could never understand,
    A beacon of truth that is you
    To be a pesticide to hate
    As it is rooted in misunderstandings and lies.
    Even as I break with you,
    My ears will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take my hand,
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you these two shoulders
    For you to lean on
    When the maelstrom
    Gets too be so strong
    And you fear you cannot weather the storm;
    Let them hold you up
    When you feel you are
    About to crumble
    Under the weight of oppression;
    Let them catch your tears
    And support your weary soul
    In the moments
    You just need a break
    From the battles you wage.
    Even as I break with you,
    These shoulders will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take my hand,
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you this heart
    So that you will know
    Without a shimmer of doubt
    That you are loved;
    Let it break instead of yours
    So that you never lose
    The ability to love others,
    To accept love,
    And to love yourself,
    Let it beat in tandem with yours,
    So you’ll never have to worry
    If yours will falter
    In the face of adversity;
    Let it be a second reminder
    That you exist
    Just as you should.
    Even as I break with you,
    These pieces of my heart will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take my hand,
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you these two feet.
    To walk beside you
    So that you will never be alone,
    A companion to keep you company
    Down dark roads
    Where demons lie in wait;
    Let them beat the same pavement
    And walk in your shoes
    To gain the unique perspective
    You have of the world;
    Let them walk in rallies, marches, and protests
    In support of you
    And to fight for you;
    Let be a reminder
    That these paths we walk,
    The bridges we cross,
    They are never taken alone.
    Even as I break with you,
    These feet will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take my hand,
    It’s safe, I promise.
    Let me give you this voice
    To remind you
    That you are a beautiful person
    With a soul to match;
    Let it remind you of your
    Hopes and dreams
    And shout your triumphs to the world
    Even as you focus
    On the stumbles along the way;
    Let it spread your message,
    Your story
    To the world
    Because the world needs to know
    And people need to hear
    The thoughts and ideas
    You have to share;
    And let it always be there
    In the heart of the night
    To sing you into a land of whimsy
    And keep the nightmares at bay.
    Even as I break with you,
    This voice will always be there
    When you need them.

    Take this hand
    It’s safe, I promise
    And it’s here for you
    Whenever you need it,
    Free of charge,
    Free of judgment,
    Free of hate and rejection.
    So, while I am breaking,
    I’m breaking with you
    And you have all the pieces of me
    That you need
    For all the times
    You have need for them.
    Please, you are not alone.
    "Forget the lingering darkness in your scars
    and pour so much light into everything you touch,
    the universe will have to create brighter stars
    once you're gone."
    -D. Antoinette Foy
