Rebel With A Cause


I fight often
I strive for my choosing
I wear fabric cut against the grain

I live for the groaning
I breath in resistance
I exhale pain

I chew on my consciousness
I sip on attention
I grasp for my gain

I dance to no melody
I sleep to avoid dreaming
I listen to silence in the rain

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
