    Touch they do
    The edge
    The page
    Sharper than
    Samurai sword
    To cut
    The soul
    The blood
    Flows
    Like words on page
    Bleed
    As ink
    From fountain pen
    Right sites, sight writes
    Little boys and girls
    Watch daddy
    Ravish mommy
    Domestic brutality
    Statistical accuracy
    Like every 9 seconds
    A woman is assaulted and beaten
    Pain infects her spirit
    Resembles disease ridden flesh
    Plague of mankind
    Create
    Destruct
    Conception
    Devastation
    Man is the affliction
    Her/His own worst enemy
    Yet a dogs best friend
    Isn't who a dog believes he…is
    Egomaniacal seeking his own subjects
    To be beyond the animal kingdom
    Is being man?
    Being angel?
    Being as God?
    That is not who we are
    That is not who we deserve to be
    Why try to subject oneself with the burden of oneself?
    Or is it ourselves?
    Only we could attempt to lead each other,
    When the one before us is just as blind as we
    The only one that I can lead is…me
    The rest of my family I will only try to guide
    Try to teach the balance of humility and pride
    Learn by growth for me myself and I
    To learn more than just who, what, when, where, but also why.
    Applying knowledge transforms into wisdom
    More than common things learned everyday
    Find the knowledge on the written page
    To be Sage
    The true Mage would be mind
    Mind can overcome violence
    No longer bleed
    Ink blood
    Page augments gauze
    Pen becomes tourniquet
    Live, Love in peace the suture
    Concealing Paper-cut poetry.

    This was in a word.....beautiful. The meaning packed within are truly powerful and thought provoking. Your words are the signature of a true poet's heart and mind.

    this is so realistic, that most "real ones" will have missed it
    it only gets better, teaching to Learn from Self like Metu Neter
    I see you sparkling - even in light of day, SUN
    thank you for remarking how we should fight and write and pray, ONE...
