A feeling shared over coffee
reaffirms my membership
in the human race.

A smile shared in the morning
reaffirms my faith in the day.

A memory shared across the years
reaffirms my validity.

Why am I only valid when you see me?

Why can I not define myself and
in my own eyes be worthy?

Ain't it?

We call each other into being.

I love your last phrase. Why can't we define ourselves.....
We so desperatley need people in our lives. People who care about us. It is a wonder Robinson Crusoe (sp I know that ain't right) survived....

Thanks George and Glen for your comments. It truly is part of the human condition.
