The Outside Glory Of The Story Within

Posted in poetry with tags , , on June 28, 2009 by Uncle Tree


In remembrance, we harvest the touchable

With all due respect, we negotiate the unspeakable


The fruits of our labor produce the cream of the crop:

those who question every law set in stone

who ponder over the face value of moral obligations

who are never satisfied until they go below the surface

who step outside the ring of glory with an act of self sacrifice

in order to find the story within

and the legend they may one day become
