I Must Forsake Walls

I have
too many rooms
needing
filled.

Too many
empty spaces
barren walls and
looming ceilings.

All yearning
for a bigger
life than I
care to live.

I wanted
space to be
to breathe
to be free.

But spaces
bound by walls
are too expansive
or small.

Judgmentally
barren
or stiflingly
filled.

I wanted space
but for freedom
I must forsake
walls.

The World Needs Saving

The world
needs saving
but not from
you or I.

It needs saving
but not from your
horror filled gaze.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show the way.

The world
needs saving
but not from
our broken hearts.

It needs saving
but not from our
anxious protest.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to be a different way.

The world
needs saving
but not from your
sweet soul.

It needs saving
but not by
you or I.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show
how to be the way.

 

Ancient Mind Filling Infant Eyes

Ancient mind
filling
infant eyes.

Ragging
against
impotent flesh.

Feeling wrongness
from first
breath.

Letting loose
a primal scream
of the alienated
and dispossessed.

Losing memory
but not
grief.

Mourning
for what
should be.

Waiting
to awaken
and be free.
