There be a captive


There be a captive in the
Snow
I saw snow
Ferreted
Out
And heavy breath
A brief mist
And then
The tiny feet
Of
The struggling hedgehog
Even we
We
Humans
Struggle in the snow of life
Struggle in the gales of storms
Struggle in the chill of emotions
Struggle in the sere leaves of sorrow
Struggle in the culture of the sad
Struggle in the pining eyes of despair
Struggle in the hunger and the parched throat
Struggle, struggle, in the last throes
Of the human rights activist
The Poet Seer that be
That was
That will be
In struggle, struggle, struggle

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
