misshapen methods

of a deeper part,

a thought from word


leaves the silence of the mind,

in childhood you vowed to stand


become a separate species by behaviour,

absorbing light upon the tongue,

bringing radiance to your words,

as you became older

and voice shifts .

tonal extractions became thunder,

leading not following,

joined to your own convictions

no excuses,

you perpetrate

what convinces you as right,

becoming oblivious

to calls and rejections,

these methods are in play,

under the umbrella of a party,

you have made your stand,

and all before become dust

    I’ve just added to my story here:

    Good! Universal! Essential! Tight! (Sounds like my upcoming book “Birth, Death & InBetween”- just a different style.) Arlene

    So true! I love the line, ‘what convinces you as right.’ Really nice piece, thanks for sharing.
