RESTING ON A STONE PORCH
-—————————————————————————————

Resting on a stone porch
Searching inside for words and thoughts
That will express my paradox
Knowing there is no answer to torch
The torment of my body, soul, mind…I’m caught
I am being kept in an endless box

Around me slither the creatures who keep me there
Their evilness seeps through as acceptable
In an existence where it is a game for them to control, abuse and torture me
I’m totally aware
That it is unstoppable and uncontrollable
They remind me every day, every hour, every minute that I am not free

I must exist in turmoil and pain
Pushing, questing, searching, for what others take for granted
Struggling, fighting, and defending – my right to exist
Not only to exist, but to fully live

With desires and dreams fulfilled and not taken in vain
Instead of fearing what will be taken if I do not please, a life that is slanted
Forced to live with and for less than nothing, to subsist
For really only when you are allowed to live, can you give

When you are kept in a box of shadow locks
Under endlessly dark, hovering, oppressive, pursuing and overwhelming clouds
You realize your death is impending for there is no true protection or solution
Only short-term, simple and minute methods to deal with the madness
They have carved into my right side – An indelible mark of the morning cocks
Of an ominous reality and knowing existence, the shrouds
The never-ending torture of a body purposefully filled with pollution
Not wanting or needing to deal with the not dealable, not faceable, unanswerable dilemma and forever sadness
