Cup 13: Want

 

 

Is it safe to want?

 

Is it safe to want food, shelter, security?

 

If you ask for water will the jailer break the cup?

 

Is it a sign of weakness to want?

 

Are you at risk in a country where it is not safe to walk, not safe to be thirsty, not safe to wear certain clothes, nor to be naked?

 

In a country where only one color, one shape, one nose, one gender is safe?

 

Where it is safe to want chips and cartoons, but not freedom, justice, compassion?

 

How alive do you want to be?
