I didn’t think

we came this far

to fail.

I exhale,

and it’s a new start.


Bring back the frozen eyes

of the dead end wanderer.

Slow down that self destruction,

make it last a good while.


Long enough to consecrate

your path ahead.

Take the time

to sanctify your benediction.



it is Holy to suffer,

but only if you suffer

for what you love.


Grave days

bring back the ways

of the Gate Keeper,

who holds the keys,

and bars the way.



we have to say,

“This far and no further.”


It’s important

to have boundaries.



HG – 2020
