to crumble at thoughts of needs and desires
and drop the people from stability
into the arms of possibility.
there’s a view past normality
and the vision lands for a fraction or more
on what can be that was never before.
blinds men and women to this life and times
and imposes a walk unsteady and slow
until the heart no longer grows.
back up from a need, desire, and more
till bruised and battered we again stand
firm and upright upon the land.
all who desire the “not ere before”
and I mourn that fall weightless and free
into the arms of possibility!
