Puzi, Thank you for this fine, lyrical poem! I especially like the following:

Dignity is

Walking on the street with no one giving you the cold shoulders

Ah, yes, compassion and valuing our shared humanity!

I will keep an eye out for your next poem. (I have clapped for all published thus far). Best wishes always, Amy
