The gentle ones

“Pay attention to the gentle ones,
the ones who can hold your gaze
with no discomfort,
the ones who smile to themselves
whilst sitting alone
in a coffee shop,
the ones who walk
as if floating.
Take them in and marvel at them.
Simply marvel.
It takes an extraordinary person
to carry themselves
as if
they do not live
in hell.”

– D. Bunyavong
