All We Need Is...

I search for you
On a thousand faces
Caressing the marks of time
And pain

Within the places that have
Slipped through the cracks
Forever hiding in shame

I reach for you
With constant embraces
Examining the souls
Of the sad

There
You can be harvested
Polished and glorious
Waiting to be recognized

... and applied

Because you reside
In all the races
Within all aspects
Of life

Stinger
Puncturing soft flesh
Within seconds
Wilting the flower
I was to become
Now
I'm just a mess

Words Imprisoned

Words held prisoner
Behind quivering lips
Afraid...
Afraid to let them fly
To be heard
... and rejected

Pocket

Collecting
Treasures
As we meander through nature
My three boys
Collecting
Miniature treasures
In which I place within
My pocket
