Here’s a poem I wrote called Layers of Invention, alongside a recent abstract I call Battle Cry.

Layers of Invention

battle cry

Learning From

What you could have done?

Value in Human Error

The long run

Marathon to being

Terrified

Inside feeling

Overcome

Outside nostalgia

Back to when

You were young

A child

And felt love

Long the days

Spontaneously happy

Yet misguided by fear

Recall back

Though never to fully know

What was missed?

The past

Only memory

Perception

Short-lived

Layers of Invention

All you can give
