NO.4

 

THIS ORGAN NEVER GOT TO BE FRAGILE

NOR DOES THE MAN WITHIN IT

GET TO UNRAVEL

BUT TRAVEL,

TO A PLACE OF RESERVATIONS

JUST LIKE HIS PRIOR GENERATIONS,

HE HAS HESITATION 

DUE TO THE RULES AND REGULATIONS

OF WHAT IT MEANS

WHAT IT MEANS  TO HAVE THE ESSENCE OF HIS GENES,

SKIN THAT BEAMS

BUT QUICKLY FALLS INTO A ROUTINE

THAT IS SORT OF UNSPOKEN

A ROUTINE THAT IS UNDOUBTEDLY CORROSION

THAT SHUTS DOWN EMOTION

AND LEAVES NO ROOM FOR OPEN

 

BREAK HIS PATTERN AND WATCH HIS PRIDE GO SILENT

BUT SOMEHOW A FRAGILE SPINE IS DEFIANT

ABSENT HE REMAINS

SO TRUTH HE REFRAMES

BUT HE KNOWS

AND SO DOES HIS SHADOWS  

 

eh.
