Scoliosis of the Mind
Muddled thoughts of fusion seem to cut into my mind;
bending spine with weight of thoughts—
Decisions that are mine
Nerves slice up the back bone; while thoughts invade my mind
Deflating air within my lungs
and moving things around
If I choose to fuse my will with that of you or him,
how will it change the face of me
and all that I can do?
But I believe, if left undone, the weight of things will bend
the fragile spine that now is curved
under burden fear
Conforming, then’s the answer--Fusing will with Yours,
by gently bending curving spine
to bow o’er humble knee.
