    Chaste No More

    I am not sorry for wanting more than what is mine. With bold petition submitted and license granted I am committed. Secret longings cloaked in darkness now revealed. My image perceived differently, more selfish with lustful desires made known. The flesh now gaining ground on virtue, morality already beaten weeps in defeat. I will move forward selecting a path for myself and avoiding the one the herd has laid. I will give no offense and do no harm with false intent. Truth is my coin. Judge me not for the things I do, but respect me for doing my own thing.

    Brother Mitchell...

    I found this piece to be deeply reflective and candidly unapologetic for what
    so many of us feel...and should stand our ground on...and that is,
    being "who" we are - blazing and following the path that is destined for us...
    Not only that...I've always loved the word "Chaste"...I wrote a piece once
    with that title, so this one caught my eye.

    Magnificent peace...Stirring Read....I loved it!

    A conscious mind functions like no other

    As rhyme is a terrible thing to waste

    I love your work!
