A Hope Filled Vessel

Posted to Poetry




A hope filled vessel bereft of chance
but desire is there in the eyes-
A flame that dances
and cannot be quieted
by defeats and despair alike
Inside is something growing
and it can’t be named with words-
Roots anchor;
Establish their place in this Earth;
and gain girth
in un nameable chaos
Fashioned from fire and copper and wire,
My heart
is maintained in such a way
that nothing can mar it-
No thing can alter its content
or clarity
with bruises-
contusions which only serve the purpose
of proving
that I have lived!
