Beginning again is not as daunting a prospect
as felt at one time, not too long ago.
He is learning very valuable lessons
What he is worth, how he will be treated
What he will put up with, his patience tried,
limits are fast approaching, he feels no sorrow
for the lack of vision in seeing his value
Poured out his heart, holding none in reserve
Some gave all and some did not.
Safe and sound is where they would be
lest they fall prey to the world outside, naive and
oblivious… needing a hand, the one denied.
