His Holiness

His Holiness

A Poem by Farrah Grahm

Chanting incantations, tempered

Brow looking to the sky for the

Promised rain. Blinking,

Expectations for mother earth to

Let the milk fall from her

Swollen bossom. Frozen joints and

Still but actively moving. He is

Pushing, digging, and burying the

Memories. He will forget his travels,

The children left behind. Exile is

Just a word. It does not include or

Convey the pain. In between the

Crossed planks and haloed tower,

You do not see the red and scarred

Face of an every man, family-less

Homeless, shelterless and loveless being.

His Holiness wil weather the drought.

He doesn'tunderstand how he

Can be unable to command her.

Nature disobeys him.

Trying to find me In this heart lies a tomb for memories. In my head is where their spirits go. I spend my life trying to be the one who won't disappoint, but in the past I've made each possible mista.. more..
