Embrace From 2000 Miles

Embrace From 2000 Miles

Within your grace
And upon your will
I rest my head waiting for release
From all that I forgive each day
Due to the ignorance of men and wild whims of nature

Is all I trust lessons that were taught
Or do my instincts take over from my intellectual ignorance of pain and the hate
I rest my head on your warm sensibilities
Hearing your breath pour from each thought
Feeling the embrace of all my present and past relatives through your voice
As I a Nestle in the arms of genetic history
Cradled in the spiraled chromosomes of those that gave me this strong will
And this dark brown hair turning to white
And this Wonderlust that will someday bring me back to you

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

For Ruth C Stroud, my maternal grandmother who gave everything she could to love and guide us on this world of woe.

My writing is typically written while I'm on a treadmill, so I call myself "the treadmill poet!"
Born in West Chester Pa in 1960 I have been inspired to begin writing again through my interactions with two people I care deeply about that are experiencing the torrents of mental illness.
