You are heresingularity


By jamesaguiar - Posted on 24 July 2014


how do you measure change?
what is the range-
in microseconds between love and loss
and chill and frost?
steadiness is the course
for those who have seen the worst
and learned to live with unquenched thirst
expectations are seldom met
and always the loss of self
to succumb to someone else
their ambition, expectation
which seeds a path to deprivation-
opinion moves, melts and dries
a garden of weeds for the eyes
but, being at peace in one's own temple
learning to maintain one's mettle
in the face of force beyond control
which can never touch the soul-
in the coldest moments of existence
dedication patched to persistence:
yields unique reward
separating the singular from the herd:
to understand beyond spoken words.
one's separate salvation
in a world wrought from estrangement
