higher song

I get mail

notes from others

folk I loved way back when

& let’s not get confused

not all of them are my friends

but we are family

raised by different mothers

& I might get misty about these

cos I get none

from the people who raised me

they have nothing

to say to out loud anymore

& you may think

I must’ve done them badly

been just plain wrong

but the truth is harder

I frighten them

having adventures

seeing & being in the world

they just don’t like

I raised myself strong

learned a higher song

stepped out of the mud

learned to crawl free

One thought on “higher song
