THIS ALLEGED AND FORMAL VULNERABILITY

What a little bruised fate
is our story, not so harsh
just loving out of necessity
in order to survive we choose to live
in a heart, with all its comfort

a little late divinity for
an uneventful youth, where
we were not lucky to find a big love
you see, we are more fragile
than we thought, and life is more

austere in the next decade
than we ever imagined possible
no wonder those folk are so stern
life has beaten them down
from the inside, and they are vulnerable

more vulnerable than they would
have imagined, at twenty, at thirty?
but you and I, we have learned
to deny the gloom, to shut the door
to sorrow, like children in a make-believe

we call our soul a shared marriage
it’s a kind of journey in gentleness
to despair together is no longer misery
it’s what we call a journey, every sweet
month, this lifetime of acceptance

forgiveness, and gratitude, it’s like family
they don’t always tell you what
they have lived, but somehow you know.

  1. The cadence matches the message quite well, I defaulted to reading this quietly, you can sense the fragility in the words, as well as the message. I enjoyed this, and look forward to exploring more of your work.

  2. Beautiful baby, just beautiful !! Yet even the shards of broken glass within us turns us into super-heroes when that action becomes necessary.I’ve seen it and your time will come to be that super-hero. Trust me. : Swami Kennymack.(Smile)
