sudden haste arose as i entered the gates heaven abounded this place seen by the look on my face i'd been tormented over the years of just what i'd say to you through so many tears thieves tore into the mere grave sight hatred and greed uprooted the maple tree exposing your human remains to little ole me i suppose the faint hisses humorous livid kackling hindered beneath my feet the ground rumbled a neccessity approach steeples staggered stones crumbled as i remembered our last talk from that day i began to walk i danced on your toes as you kissed my nose how to mourn such fond memories why i gravely uttered are you here among the hidden anger behind the sword and dagger of thieves swagger whom followed me to your final resting place yellow pansies lured me through soft earth wooden stumps lined like apostle guiding me to a quiet breeze that aroused the hairs on my neck this place of aching suffering crowded with wails timid screams of lifeless suffering bandits ripping broaches scarfs watches from the unearthed i called out to the father amids my quiet fear tip toeing backwards year after year leaning over where your plot use to be but now exposed for all to see resurrecting the holy spirit you now own no more wandering among the valley of dry bones from a brisk wind the sky opened abruptly releasing souls into the clouds one by one taking your place upon a long awaited throne removing the malice seated forever with jesus in his fine palace

kindred spirits soaring helplessly landing behind borrowed time an ecstacy filled with desire beckoning emptiness to be measured on occasions of compassionate score's lifting heavens doors just for awhile shining a beacon light of brilliant colorful hues spiraling downward creating a distant fragile belief within us as we unselfishly disagree with where our hearts arrangements may gathered in a nest of kindness catching us each and everytime we fall

the vision intertwine from the depths of my souls pleading heart anxiously awaiting my entrance wildly tamed mastering naught calmly beneath me in spite of daytime medley i'd vaguely withstoods hints of a bias need stemming from the spriritual negro aspect a coming laughter catered to an yet measured throughout the infamous gloating italian song hung like pearls around my slender neck ravishing me above masonic ware's craving the ancient temples of pyramids carved within my sortedness gleaming between a rapture graciously borrowed five generations ago i could reach into the fighting fiercelessly of irish chimney sweepers faded memories of polands esscentric reaction to poverty and gurt channeled throughout the dust of kremlin's shore's on tar beach vaguely i'd settled into a silent germanic structured being outwardly lived however quietly frowned upon around here

no not even one of us were without confusion bathed in sorrowful sweat geared with chafe thoughts no not one of us were without meaningless gestures blank souls froliciking about human kindness beseeched morally over human sufferage why we'd remembered the graveness captured on the grassy knolls an yet we'd fathered coil against the bleak minded forces that read no not even one of us while we raced from the balconies pointing at fear chasing  bretheren reaching sorely at an explanation for our unchallenged grief why we harbor unjust feelings of angst tempered an yet we'd fogotten the fishermans boat poured over we'd forgotten the water had turned to wine quenching the son of man parched lips while a harp strings rest at his feet why there was not even one of us tearless at the sight that called us to mourn time after time one phophet one myth as we chattered among familiar smiles familiar emotions lest we be scattered about morbidly dazed by the wrath of mankind the disciples patiently awaiting our place in line as heartless toilng covered in birminghams mud fallen to sleep at faith desperately seeking solace for peace why away from our father's house bidding gambling on hope while we honored less starring in a broken mirror glancing back at only a planted dream knowing full well that no not one of us could ever enter the promiseland without holding our brother's hand

and then night come upon us we weren't prepared at all not in this day where we created such a stir causing the moon to blush with pink hushes underneath the starry skies why night appear as a blanket of warmth concealing our nakedness the way the breeze seemed to blow so briskly across the nape of my form coming from a soft sun set ravished by the oceans wonder our senses missed this calling completely coasting setting sail between karma and desire delightfully corked to be opened only in time abruptedly unexpectly capturing my heart on your wings

i'd wandered off again deep into perlarcher forest leaving the plattoon in solitude awaiting my abode retreat beneath a sullen offering malice inspite peace time as polizie could be heard way off in a distance soft memories of berlin arose as my eyes were blinded with visions of auschwitz entrance gate quite thee ordinary emotions followed as i journaled quietly tussling with the mere rapture of katyn coverage leaving so much behind my parents heavily guarded taken and tortured as i kneeled when my infant baby girl was handed off branded placed in a large bin joining many other tots the sound of the bell tower rang as clear smoke turned to black then into a gray mist i listened as thee earth silenced a thousand cries smothered within this chamber heavily guarded by trained passionate men of arms i'd awakened to a conscious thought victory or death light snow camoflauged the formation of russian tanks abandoned that year i hunkered down waving a soil stained pink blanket over the baltic sea
