Leaning

and where
does this
           Sadness
live

 

behind the eyes, it screams
within the gut, it whispers
along the soles of your flat feet
across the lines of your beautiful
palms

 

it quivers and burns
it is breath and bile and all the
bounty of
Life

 

it shimmers and glows
it is light and hope and all the
wisdom of
God

 

it is
        Freedom
