Each Of Us


         If you tell me your name
             you tell me a history,
   abbreviated yes, but one
of decisions, dates and
       moments of significance
I know nothing about.
I too leave a shadow.
    My fears may be different
or diluted; this life treats us in ways
   nobody else would imagine,
                          or understand.
        Each of us
    will have questions
   We will always have questions.
It is human to want to know and learn,
    and listen.
    If you tell me your name
            I will tell you mine.
Then we will be equal
    and available to continue
           the conversation.
