WILD WORLD

the me inside is very different from the me outside

I seek only to heal and Love

I seek only to be there, to be true

 

outwardly I wreck and fuss

leaving so much undone, pictures not hung

shelves not soldered onto walls

clothes strewn across the bedroom floor

like discarded thoughts

yesterdays rubbish, yesterdays cares

 

BUT the true me comforts you

inside my head

as the children scream and emit strange forces beyond our control

wobbling the very walls of our house!

 

the road to hell is paved with good intentions

am I ‘good intentions’ ?

 

surely something must pass through

surely I have attained some lightness against the pure white feather of truth

 

perhaps not

I must remain humble

 
BUT I do love

and I do try, and try

and try, and try

 

nothing can unsettle this heart for it is set upon its goal

to bring happiness to my many Loves

to my singular Love

 

turn all you want, wild world

for I shall still stand up to you

face you with any strength I have

You’re a crooked, vicious and evil brute

and I’ll fight you with socks on or off

 

and I’ll win

for I’ve already won

and Love is the prize
