guarded guardian

music. that’s the only way
for me to define my movements,
i must paint your pace
up and down
my face is tenacious
amongst what others
expect from a force…
assume strength holds
final excuses. i mean
i am supposed
to morph into this
shape of suspect. assume knowing
depth. rising from below
lower than what a top chart analyzes.
interpret how i
mold into history. fit this
shape. structure understanding
to a place of understand.
if i stretch into accept
can my bend touch
a place where we are
safe.
