more reason for hope

“The innocence she carried that day,
waiting for my father, had been tinged
with misconceptions, her own needs.
But it was a guileless need, one
without self-consciousness, and
perhaps that’s how any love
begins, impulses and cloudy images
that allow us to break across our solitude,
and then, if we’re lucky, are finally
transformed into something firmer.”

– Barack Obama
