equal parts faith and fear,
Insecurity erected by skeleton,
Made mortal by flesh
immortalized in melanin.
The quiet kid of open mind and ear,
Eager to hear,
Yet deaf to the volume of his own voice.
The dreamer who reaches for stars but
can only seem to cling to regret
–The one with the throat swollen from truths unshared.
The willfully ignorant one
blinded in the light of his own sun;
The impatient, wandering wonderer.
Worthy, yet waiting for his someday to begin.
