To Know Love Instead

Accepting oneself
as outcast
seems counterfeit

When infant and
animal alike
survive on
the opposite

Death appears
to nurture
a future for them
in deep topsoil

Yet the counterfeit
is like cool tiles
to burn scars

Death contains
a quiet
lack of criticism

It is the outside
of the pack

Yet is this where
we should seek
voiding of pain?

Perhaps we should
know love instead
