Measures of Life

 

The piercing silence

echoes above

like a rushing freight train

 

Pondering free will—

the unknown

unconscious future

 

So much dirt been done

trying to go up

on the downstairs

trying to just keep a head up

above the water

 

 

give me voice

give me light

give me space

give me flight

give me confidence

give me growth

give me the strength

to do everything that is right

 

Allowed to be

strong and courageous

spontaneous and outrageous

conservative and sensitive

bound up by ambitions

and contain the determination to carry on

 

Allow me to find a legacy

moral standards high and unbent

able to feast in creative colors

and bonds of the heat and soul

to find a niche in this sped-up

food chain of carnivorous perspectives

 

Liberate

mind and soul..

 

My body standing

sure

firm

tall

straight

undying

healthy

helpful

honest

and sane…

Between all the measures of life
