Give It Away

By Christopher Rupley

 

The mind is a playground

for us children who drown

in the intoxicating and subtle

tides of such subtle sounds

 

That woo us first,

then scar us after,

bandage us,

force us to retreat

 

And if we’re lucky,

we realize that all

we have to give is

ourselves anyway

 

We relent,

fall back on old ways,

then finally see

that we were never

meant to hide our pain,

our essence,

the whole of who we are…
