Nuance – Random Midnight Thoughts

Who are we, really, to judge trauma—what it is and does, who it affects? And who are we to reduce experience into blades of lexicon wielded in aggressive defense?

Who are we, truly, to decide for a person their victimhood and strength?

In the middle of the night, I keep wondering: have we forgotten the nuance of listening? Why did that stop being enough?

When did triumph need to be nothing but victory?
