Birth Right.

Is any of it really mine, by right?

  • to warm my bones in the sunlight,
  • to feel at home in the veil of night,
  • to wonder alone at the hindsight,

there’s no healing from this bite, this time;

Is there any answer to the call?

  • to look beyond the surface of it all,
  • to ready the strong for the cannonball,
  • to steady the path past the pitfall

there’s no walking after this fall, embrace it.
