Visceral

Visceral

 

Learning from an early age,

Be alert always guage

That became a constant ritual,

Visceral, intuitive and habitual

What is said is not what’s meant,

Keep your guard up, circumvent

Perpetually reading their pose,

It tells much and will disclose

What’s in the heart to protect you

Whether parent, friend, or foe

One step ahead of that which comes

Beating loudly as though with drums

Do what you must, hide where you can

You’ll live another day, your not less than

Time and attention, love and affection

Hope flourishes, now an intersection

Of time, just up ahead, a new life

Without endless strife
