Inside to drift far from

The torture within

I stray to where

The darkness wakes

The spirit in cold

Shivers of fear

I repose to hear

The peace my mind

Cries to embrace

Alone beneath the

Baltic blankets of

Repair to forgive

The boy inside

The man whose

Anger would destroy

The beauty he builds

To create the peace

He will only find alone

Before the hand

Outstretched can

Embrace the calm

Of a mind healing

From memories


To be overcome

(C) Francis joesph Mcgivney

Sometimes a man understands the desire of others to embrace to help the healing but knows the repairs need to be made alone to prevent them ripping apart over and over and over again. There is a strength in some which others will never know. a strength to be apart in order to rejoin the tribe
