I saw an entry to someone’s journal today that reminded me of this poem that I wrote a couple of years ago:

This Boy

This boy’s hands shake

-Only slightly, so that I would notice-

And I fear for him.

I fear for him because

He has an intellectual mind

And a good soul.

The world says it admires

These qualities, but it devours

Those who posess them.

Perhaps the world feels

That by consumption of those

It will in turn become the same;

Perhaps the world fears those

And by consumption of them

It will alleviate that fear.

I am unsure, but this boy’s

Hands shake-only slightly-

And I fear for him.

In other news, my computer is kinda ass-up right now. I don’t know when I’ll be back. Cross your fingers, cross your legs, cross your eyes, wiggle your nose and PRAY. Thank you.

Don´t be shy. Lay it on me.
