A Composition of Self Healing


My invisible middle finger

       is a flag of peace

Only when you think I’m kidding

                                                I laugh through my teeth

An irritation of your ignorance


To what expense does life of constant mass work bring to happiness

If not just time wasted on servitude to nothingness?


Here where the old lingers and the new parts its ways


Whilst there is peace now

              It almost feels like this serenity is unnatural

                               Like its so unusual to be conflict free

I don’t deserve it…
