before you

before you

A Poem by The earth (Titan maphaha)

Before lashing me with hate understand
Before simmer bitterness reckon your miscalculations
before you
I commend my spirit

Before summoning your troops I bow
welcomed your splendid vow
closing all memento closets of our cryptic lives
and our glinting past that scare us with knifes
we pulled through though
we bleed scars
bruises evident as the sun

We succumbed failures so success taste sweater
Like gladiators we came alive
before you I present our chronicles
our past manacles
bonds we share

Before
Before you
broke away from me I present shutters of glass to you
that mingled together solidly turned grains
kaleidoscopically distributed atoms
Here...
this is glue
lets mend then together
to show that we came miles
going this rough road

'Before you ~~ broke away from me I present ~~ shutters of glass to you ~~ that mingled together solidly turned grains ~~ kaleidoscopically distributed atoms'

Immensely powerful, colourful words, finely put. Combined history hinted: perhaps settling a past event that proved difficult, perhaps an apology?

Perhaps the word 'sweater' should read ' sweeter'?

Like to read not merely scan. :)
nice calling... sounds like a call for healing... or victory perhaps... though it's a tough road we made it through... nice one...
