parenthesis

you are

the mango

and

the tree,

the fruit

and

the fruiting,

the juice

and

the pulp.

you are

the roots

and

the soil,

the water

and

the thirst,

the tree

and

the grove.

(do not)

let us pull you from yourself,

divining your essence while

disposing your vessel

(do not)

let us bask in your glory while

denying your rights

(do not)

let us light our way with your brilliance while

casting you into the shadows.

you are

the before

and

the after,

the now

and

the then,

the beginning

and

the forever.

(do not)

let us in.
