Unhinged(What Lies Beneath)




Many Storms of Abuse



Still Navigates

the Ever Murky Depths

of Too Many

Pained Yesterdays

The Children of Yesteryear

are Today’s Adults

Survivors All Told

Not Totally Broken,

Yet Pensive


a Survivor’s Ultimate

Price that has to be Paid

The Depth

of His Piercing Eyes

Tell Tales

Where Words Not Possibly Adequate

to ever Convey

Nor Powerful Enough

to Get a Fraction of the Reality Across.

Sees a World in the Purest

and Most Stringent

of Absolute Black and White

Strong Words

Sentiments Run Deep and Long

Through the Fabric

Of this One’s Humanity

Each New Tomorrow brings Levels of Peace

Even if the Memories

Burn On……
