Only Us – - Small, Solitary

House of Cards - Kevin Spacey

There’s no solace
above or below.
Only us —
small,
solitary,
striving,
battling one another.
I pray to myself,
for myself.

~ House of Cards, 1×12.

  7. Only us, small but larger than life, solitary yet part of the collective human race, striving and arriving, battling one another foolishly … because we are one another.
