Acknowledgment for those who recently paused a moment and forgot themselves.


Who is?

That person who defies gender labeling
The one who wakes in the morning while darkness slumbers

A conscience never far away from the heart's steady rhythm
While others wallow in forgetfulness

The one who when a baby cries
Wonders past the obvious and pursues the tears not yet born

He or she who knows beyond feeling
Tolerates in lieu of judgment and communicates rather than indulge solipsism

That person who knows the joining of hands
Need not be a defense for weakness

A human who understands thinking needs the quiet
Knowing the rewards of identity reside within

Persons of true compassion remaining anonymous
As their part of millions preserves millions

The "who is" of humanity

Forgive this comment, which could be received as obsequious, but I truly felt as I read this, that the 'who' was 'you,' Odin. The manner in which you express yourself in writing provided my answer to "Who is?" I'm just sayin'....... ~~ Diana

I read this and thought who is this amazing person, and hoped in this political season that maybe it was a saint of a politican and yet, at the end you speak of humanity. (So often you refer to solipsism); I truly hope at the minimum that person "who knows the joining of hands need not be a defense for weakness" could possible be a place that humanity could start. And I actually really appreciate how you were able to not write from the perspective of He or She....clearly we.
