a body without spirit
unless you're wrapped in doubt
reasons guide movement
and tides carry us forward
until the nameless cease to bow
seekers stand crowned
with no fret from angled brow
father's lot maintained

piece of gain in mind
when life is one, a player's game
and who i am is weighed
scales rooted in another's cracking frame
awake another day
your shadow at morning strides behind
sons of gaia, daughters of man
how then else are we defined

"for you only know a heap of broken images,
where the sun beats,
and the dead tree gives no shelter"
your shadow at morning rises to meet
the conscious mind, to know this feat
is another day awake

unnamed, unsaved
a misnamed fragile one
hold with justification
and against this barrier
close the door
how could you abandon underprivileged youth
"I will show you fear in a handful of dust"

wait with openness to clasp the hands of those you meet
never learn to soundly sleep
or await the clinging grasp of dream
the cautious wade in shallow streams
freedom waits within the wings
of birds so light their throats can sing.
