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

those

indefatigable, gifted, influential.

 

Grandma’s, Paw-Paw’s, Aunties and Uncles –

those souls

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.
