THE TASTE OF BLOOD
(2/16/19)


we are
constantly
in conflict

tearing
our own
flesh

if not
ripping
another's

mostly
we battle
metaphorically

but truly
we suffer
our unrealistic
expectations

our comparisons
to our peers

genetically
we are spurred
to bigger

to better

but our
brains
know better

they should
transcend
beyond
the physical

the emotional

the self created
fantasies

the self created
fallacies

when we
finally
spit out
the strife
of this
wolrd

the path
to God
begins
