A Handful of Poems

Written by Deborah Fielding

Love
We hold glances
when we cannot press
hands.
The weight lifts for a
time.

#BeKind
Kindness is not just
a superficial absence
of hatred. It’s L O V E.

My White Skin
My white skin means that
I have never had to think
about my white skin.

Inclusivity
We thought an open
invitation was enough.
It was not enough.
~8/10/2020

It’s Okay
It’s okay to cry.
Please cry when it hurts
because then I can cry too.

Disappointment
Disappointment means
That we hoped and
that we tried.
That we were alive.
