Courage

Standard

In a ring
Of wondering
If I could ever go
So naked
Bare to bone
In show of
Never known before
If this person
That I wear
Whose wearing thin
Could so let go
Discovering
No covering
Of under or below
Let in anew
Beginning win
Let in some light
To see
Opening a window
Seeking what may ever be….

Holding

Standard

Having

Nothing but the breath

I hold

A moment in my lungs

To let it go

I’m free

 

Going nowhere

I go everywhere

In mind and heart

I care to fly above

Below I know

This only thing

I do not know

I cannot even

Grow am grown

Torn down

Without a frown

No tear or thing

Too dear to weigh

Me back I lack

No thing I need

Only the air

And to be fair

Between us Just

A must

Concede this only

Always lonely

Without truth
