Lifted up on humanity

"I was once like you - lost and afraid.
But then someone held out a hand to me and pulled
me out of the darkness.
A word.
A breath.
A smile.
It only takes something small.
A connection.
I was once very small and so very daunted.
But I grew - up and older.
And I changed.
Now I know that there will always be a
buffer for me. Something to stop me dropping all
the way down the deep, dark well.
If I look for it, if I truly place myself in the
hands of humanity then I am lifted.
I used to be just like you until I opened my eyes."
