UNTITLED #29

 

THOUGH IT IS OBSCURED AND REMOVED

A REMEMBRANCE OF A LIFE GONE BY

THE TALE STILL REMAINS

 

AND THOUGH MUCH HAS BEEN ABSTRACTED

YET AS MUCH STILL HAS BEEN LEARNED

 

FOR NO MATTER THE DEPTHS OF ITS HAUNT

THE FEAR STILL LINGERS

 

I WAS BUT A CHILD IN A WORLD OF GIANTS

DENOTED BY THE NAMES UNKNOWN

FROM FRIENDS NEVER MET

NEVER FOUND

 

ECHOING IN MY EARS WERE THE WORDS OF GREATNESS

SCATHING IN MY HEAD WERE THE THOUGHTS OF SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS

CONSTANT

TOO CONSTANT

 

IN EACH DAY OF MY LIFE

LIKE A BURDEN OF UNWANTED CHALLENGE

LIKE A WIND OF CONSTANT CHANGE

WAS THE AWARENESS

 

SURPASSING MERE KNOWLEDGE

IT WAS A UNITY WITH ALL SURROUNDINGS

A BROTHERHOOD WITH ALL THINGS OF LIFE

AND AFTER-LIFE

 

AND TOO THE BECKONING FROM FRIENDS AND PLACES

NEVER KNOWN

 

‘TWAS A GIFT GRANTED UNTO ME PRECEDING BIRTH

BUT IT WAS A BENEFACTION OF GREAT FORCE

OF GREAT POWER

A BENEFACTION OF CONDITIONS

AND TURMOIL

A BENEFACTION OF WHICH INCLUDED NOT THE WISDOM

TO ACKNOWLEDGE MY OWN LACK OF

 

AND THOUGH

BY THE INFLUENCE OF TIME

IT HAS BECOME OBSCURED AND REMOVED

THE TALE STILL REMAINS

 

AS IT SHALL

BURIED IN THE CREVICES OF MY MIND
