I’ve watched
calcification of souls
with slow accretion of 
deposits of apathy
-disconnectedness rules

I was alive once
but chose petrification
with concentrated spirits
some day
I hope to connect
human rocks below
infuse empathy in them

maybe they see what I see
maybe we connect better
maybe they see value
in going back 
to soft, human shapes
dress in authentic
colours of the soul

and I will fly away
leaving open skies
for a new world
built in the spirit 
that occupied the space
such that inhabitants
never want to fly away
Never need angels
to protect them again
