Making Sense of inhumanity

For Orlando.

“…. I love my heart. I love your heart too. Mine beats strong, just like yours did. But yours is silent now. Its not how it should be; it makes no sense to me”.

Weather it be gender, personality, preferences, disability, skin color, religion, hair color or sexuality, ‘differences’ are something Cadence, as a child, and perhaps especially as an Autistic child, understands and relates to as a ‘normal’ part of humanity – the concept that some people choose to hurt other people, due to their perceptions of differences, is not one she is able to understand, and like some many of us the world over, struggles to make sense of.

“I love my heart, love my heart
I love your heart too.
If boys like boys, or girls like girls,
Really shouldn’t matter,
Because our hearts are all the same.
I love my heart, love my heart
I love your heart too.
Mine beats strong, just like yours did
But yours is silent now.
Its not how it should be. It makes no sense to me.
I love my heart, I love my heart
I love your heart too
Mine feels stronger, when people are kind to each other
If everyone is kinder, everyone else will feel stronger too”.
