You must share your gifts; someone needs them!


Belligerent allies/
no time to cry/
or wonder why/
you don't understand/
the paradox that defines/
me/
outside the box where I/
be/
shivering/
in icestorms/
emaciated & forlorn/
nursing too many stillborn/
dreams/
that lie in state/
while U berate/
negate/
attempt to subjugate/
my innate/
aura/
dismembered me/
disrespectfully/
you'll never see/
Why can't U see?
Now/
I'm/
emancipated from wish/
mode/
blasting off/
the fishbowl/
desire's strong to move/
on/
Ascending places/
foregone/
though once I scorned/
the beauty that drips/
from my fingertips/
spun gold/
lovely lyricist/
metaphoric linguist/
extraordinary publicist/
done looking for your/
acquiescent kiss/
es/
that dismiss/
es/
anything not mirroring/
ur image/
transfigured/
configured/
to conformity/
your normalcy/
left me for dead/
I almost led/
my own descent/
to mediocracy's hell/
sounded the death nell/
but myopathy can't quell/
the artistry/
innately me/
authentically/
my destiny/
diamond encrusted verbalise/
Motivated to release/
the burdens of their giftedness/
Now I will fight/
I must aggress/
for/
those I was sent/
for/
kicking hinges off/
cell/
doors/
imprison them/
no/ more/
Belligerent allies/
no time to cry/
or wonder why/
you don't understand/
the paradox that defines/
me/
outside the box where I/
be/
outside the box I champion/
me/
I/
WILL/
champion/
me/
For I must champion we!

The flowing verses awaken thought and emotion, Shirley. I can imagine this being "rapped" as a song. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,

Regis
