Less – Nayyirah Waheed

i want more ‘men’
with flowers falling from their skin.
more water in their eyes.
more tremble in their bodies.
more women in their hearts

than on their hands.

more softness in their height.
more honesty in their voice. more wonder.
more humility in their feet.

~ Nayyirah Waheed
