When I held a hand softly in mine I felt
stronger than when I used my grip to crush.
Nothing has made me feel larger in my body

by false foundations.
And though they may for a moment cast shadows upon
the ground, the ground is love, the base of existence,
the only thing of true permanence and importance.
