written by: Anne G



A creature of nature

descendant of space

created of Stardust

energy and heat

Innocuous inception

ovum and sperm

seedling developed

conception and birth

Consciousness forged

with divinity's spark

earthy immortal

of human design

Sculpted and formed

by inexpert hands


by ignorant love

Raised by attrition

well intentioned or not

freedom of spirit

rendered inert

Societal rules

moral - mores

extinguish the fire

dampen the flame

Life force entrusted

with greatness in mind

finite potential

to conquer pursue

Heavenly being

innately divine

exceptional species

 of stardust and time

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
