Day 86 – If It’s A Fire

If it’s a fire
it’s a slow-burning flame-
it has to burn long
to be enough

If it’s a muscle
it’s a well-oiled machine-
it has to endure
to matter

And if you want
to make a difference
the road is going
to be long


Day 58 – The Castle

There is no cure
for a pile of ashes
no putting back together
the plane that crashes

There is no use
in revisiting the grave
no power of recollection
that could save

But we do have the means
of preservation
a way to steel our minds
from devastation

Yes, the castle burned
as we always knew it would
but ah- do you remember
when it stood?
