Fires of shame

A climate warming up

Among denial and hope

Entraps us in smoke and hides our shame.

We make baby steps

But grow brave.

Biting ambition, we stand together.

Sound of annoyance

Unplug the crowd
and burst a sphere of silence
Around me,
If you love me.
Decibels in millions are irritant
And have their nemesis
In hugs, avoidance, and personalization.
Accept reality, ignore its sound.
