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
Her faith and belief
In the human being
Becoming very thin
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
