Testimony- Part 4

Testimony- Part 4

I am woven of threads if love and lust and longing-
Of anger and envy and hate seasoned by forgiveness.
I am nerve ends exposed and a fortress guarded.
I am made, not born, and I sing through a soul
Yaweh graces with both bitter roots and honey.
However inharmonic the melody, however minor
Key, I sing the songs I have been given to sing.
I am poet. I can do aught else.



About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
