Belligerent Poetry
did you,
that man whose eyes and mind
have been my guide
in such tough times
deal in your stately fashion
with similar questions
that wrapped you up
tore you apart and left you leaking
from the mental anguish of the heart?

i assume so,
not because it is my place
but because i realize
what lets me roll it round inside
is the thought that somewhere & time
someone i admire so
was on my side
and lost this fight
yet did not slink away
stood proud and offered others help
to make it through upright.
