NEVER A BIRD CRY SORROW (cascade)

Birds may be within limits of reasoned thought.

A man will unriddle a dream.

A man won’t admit he wished to have wings.

A man may sing with intention of self promotion.

A bird will sing of new mourning sun.

Birds may be within limits of reasoned thought.

One never saw a bird build a grave for its dead.

A man will feel sorrow for the ones he lost.

A man will unriddle a dream.

A man will judge everyone but himself.

A bird is oblivious to its shadow.

A man won’t admit he wished to have wings.

CHANGE

If worlds may collide, let

stars blazon the night

to unearth it. When mountain peaks

forfeit gravity, we shall climb high enough to reach

decision, and look down upon judgment.

When the sky falls it shall not coerce our will.

People may broadcast our actions on the failure’s net–

work and crash acrimonious

thunder upon us;

Can we stand to face it?
