The Human Simplicity


The Human Simplicity

It's been covered,

by blood and bile,

torn out of your ribs and beating and so close

like a fetus, brand new and raw

composed of something more than just love and care

you can lock it away, or you can bask in its glory

take it away from the millions or bring it out in your army

show it in your talent, a craft or your artwork

or keep it a secret, remain in your humility

either way,

you can't keep it away for very long

gnawing and frantic

like a caged animal it waits

and it knows when you need it,

when you're down trodden and hurt

and it sees when you're weakest

and it strikes.
