Build Faith

Once upon a long time ago
She was such an affable being
No effort a bother
No friendly gesture
Too extreme
But the world took advantage
Again
And
Again
Her faith and belief
In the human being
Becoming very thin
Until
The
Day
It
Cracked!
For you can only abuse the kindness
Of a soul
For so long
Until it hardens
To create a protective shell
Beautiful person
Hidden from humanity
Struggling for connection
In the cruelty of the planet
Secretly harbouring a hope
For redemption
Of this despicable human race
Be the one
Who builds faith in our society
