Strong Words of a Wood Knot

Unear-1070343

I lost my ear
listening to polished smiles talking about empty celebrities.
I lost my eye
watching decorated servants dance with sparkling greed.
I cracked my jaw
speaking life’s logical lessons to contaminated souls.
I warped my mind
thinking of the fear-filled fans of the status quo
defending the comforts of conformity
in their plastic-padded prisons.
My face has been darkened by defamation
from fanatics and fake philosophers.
But I’m part of a greater context
and have strength enough
to
gather energy from the sun
hold the earth in place
support singing birds and swinging children
collect stories from the wind,
nourishment from the rain
and determination from lovers
who pause in my shade
to adjust the harmony in the symphony of life.

”History’s Wrap:
Hollow celebrities, wing-clipped saints, fiction heroes and real monsters,
spiced with ignorance
and wrapped in obedience to greed.
A diet destined for a species attack.”
Dartwill Aquila
