Burial Of The Self

Burial Of The Self

When I open my mouth 
Your words spring from my lips.
The song I sing
 Has your lyrics...your melody.
The road I walk endless... grinding...
 Diminutive In your shadow.
Shed a bitter tear for dreams unrealized.
Sense of self eroded , downtrodden,
Soon extinct.....
Rest in peace unique one.
Your differences are not celebrated here.

As it is painful so is it profound, all that's left is the feeling, of things past and the indifference of the present 😊

As I leave here, this is my last reading for a while, I pray you be guided in God's love😊
