A poem from the book entitled Time Is a River by Mary Alice Monroe. 


HOLDING EACH OTHER UP

by Mark Nepo

Let's be honest
which doesn't mean
being harsh, but gentle.

 

Let's be clear
which doesn't mean
being dispassionate, but
holding each other up
in the face of what is true.

 

Let's be enduring
which doesn't mean
being important or famous,
but staying useful like a wheel
worn by rain in the same place
after years of carrying
each other's burdens.

 

Let's be in awe

which doesn't mean

anything but the courage 

to gape like fish at the surface 

breaking around our mouths

as we meet in the air.
