In Between The Crooks of Balance

the end:
anger in how i’ve denied,

lied in lying for an eternity

strength was false and unforgiving.

the beginning:
i will live to die for this high

for truth and justice

will not be maimed
will not be denied


misguided theories,
fruitless quests
served up endless tests
resulting in few
countless names

droves of remains;

desperate for air
in spite
of abundance,

without sight,

new light yields
all that can be
as one no longer lies in lying
for an eternity

Stand up
emulate your words

in the end
it is what you did

not what they heard.
