MONGREL MOON
(2/25/16)


we are
bent

we are
broken

we limp
through our days
the best
that we can

at times
our struggles
seem futile

but
in rare instances
life is strong
within us

we are capable
of great joy

enthusiasm
for each
and every
footstep

the wolves
will ridicule
our howls
as whimpers

still
we smile
at the simple
wonder
of it all

we gaze
the same sky
as they
