Internalisation

Standard

I eat children

Their cheeky cheeks

Are tasty treats

Such food to go

I swallow whole

So edible

Digest them all

Inside install

Such hope in thrall

This hungry heart

That cannot start

To trust I bust

With overfill

Of little babies

In instil so

Good to pool

To keep them all

I take them in

Set seed begin

To germinate

Before too late

To miss the in

Of innocence  

Undo the know

A chance to grow

Not greed but need

I have to feed

I’m only sowing seed.

Change

Standard

 

 

My World is moving

Out of shapes

I’d grown accustomed to

Before my eyes

It shifts in tides

Of flow and ebb

A web of spinning

Threads unformed

Informing gossamer

Of ghostly mists

Of yet to be enlisted

Leads the way

To catch their fro

In grasp of sway

I grip reality

Unfolding

Hold on life
