Have you ever looked at that fragile glass bowl on the top shelf,

and thought, maybe bring it to the table tonight?

What’s the hesitance about?

It could stumble and possibly fragment into pieces,

pieces you’d end up bleeding onto.

It could freeze into itself and shatter through the surface,

caving into the ongoing conflict on the inside.

But, it could also catch that ray of sunshine so beautifully,

bringing everyone on the table to soft awe.

What we don’t know is what the said fragile glass bowl could be.

But how would you know until you wrap your warm hands around it,

pull it out, and place it on the table?
