Ground furnished to knees that bend –
but choosing to walk the belabored paths
never having tendered terms of surrender.
Seeing the examples of heads held high
indefatigable, gifted, influential.
Grandma’s, Paw-Paw’s, Aunties and Uncles –
whose shoulders hold me aloft.
When love echoes –
defeat loses its vantage point
as love –
that energy which cannot
be created nor destroyed
only changes form.
That elemental force
of love serving as
the segue to immortality.
