Eventually we learn we

Are inventing our own ways of

Holding more than we have hands for

Reaching out when what’s already with us

Has been ignored

One day when we acknowledge

Our dismay was achieved

Not by outer means

But by inner malaise

I’ll say I’ve had enough indulging

What may be

I’ll say I’m not losing hope

Of what I know I’ll see

Why get in my own way?

Yes we are wounded

Only when left vulnerable

Yes only those who nobly allow

Danger being real

Only those brave souls

Ever really feel





Minimalism only if unneeded

Exceeded only when love feels heeded

Embracing faith of self

While I make this surge

If the world hails insanity

I’ll bring the absurd

With loud words
