Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. ~ Mother Teresa

Our world is utterly saturated with fear. We fear being attacked by religious extremists, both foreign and domestic. We fear the loss of political rights, a loss of privacy, or a loss of freedom. We fear being injured, robbed or attacked, being judged by others, or neglected, or left unloved. ~ Brendan Myers

The depths of despair when you’re feelingĀ unloved,
When extending for hugs but instead you’re shoved,
A dagger embedded deep into your side,
Fearful to be vulnerable, so now you hide,

You want the agony to end, to cease,
Nothing that you want more than a sense of peace,
And yet with every kindness that you bestow,
You assume your friend may turn to foe,

It becomes difficult, you openly contend,
To place others in positions where you’d depend,
The past has taught you that they’ll betray,
Though community is something for which you pray,

And so in resignation, accepting defeat,
Further into yourself, an onward retreat.
