A Big Softie


I am a big softie
when it comes to
every living thing.
I would not purposely hurt
any animal or human being.
I hold out my arms
to comfort any injured living creature
that I might find
whether it be large or small.
Everything needs love and comfort
at sometime or another
and that is left
to big softies like me.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
