Wanting to surrender  
To the life held tight
Wrapped in isolation
Over thinking
Causing perspiration

Hunted like a wild dog
Cornered by imagination
What is true
Eyes that cover the blue

Pressed down
Sheltered harness
Covers the invisible

Locked in time
Breath stands still
Fight none left
Secrets hidden
Cultivate the forbidden

In a corn field
Where nothing ever grows
He stands and stares
No one cares

Birds in flight
With the will to fight
Flying freely
Like a run away kite

Exhausted with tiredness
Sun scorching his head
Hands like splinters
Harsh will be the winter

Swooping down to capture
A closer look
Swirling around him
They take what they can

As the burnt ground
Suddenly hardens
With frost winters face
Hunger takes place

Let the rain fall
He prays
With his eyes touching the sky
Hardship in the lines of seeds
Again he prays oh why

Days pass nothing changes
Noise of the turning pages
Cries call out from the children
Empty tummies
Rumbling like drums

Digging the dark
Cold ground
Nothing to feed them
Nothing to be found

Laying their heads down
On cold damp beds
Echoes of hardship
Fill each wall


Let me be your
Beanstalk climb me
If you will
Shred my edges
Show me your skill

Aroused and woken
Words to be spoken
Calm the voices
Make your choices

Conquering the messages
Puzzled by the unsolved
Lay down your head
Sleep will resolve

Patience hidden
Underneath hands
That are worn
Worked to the bone


Let me climb
Your mountain
Allow me to
Taste your soul

Body fallen slowly
Like a new
Born foal

A trail of
Teasing delight
Eyes opened wide
Emotions suppressed

No where to run
No where to hide
