before anyone goes viral

we all know good times
end, nothing lasts forever
but who needs forever
when it comes to you and me

we live in the inbetween
the kindness of each other
the people we’ve witnessed
the people we’ve been

if there’s ever a chance
for our redemption
it’s what lives between us
and all it requires

is boundless invention
though the endless possibilities
of an infinite universe
seek to create canyons and chasms

that will try to divide us
today, we build bridges
joins, new ways to be
you and me
