Poem - Fullness Becomes

The poem “Fullness Becomes” is a consideration of the alternative seeking to survive alongside the normative.


Fullness Becomes

Fullness becomes the greater sin
compared to tradition’s kin
those thoughts that build tall walls
some escape by firm resolve

to know something beyond a cage
constructed by men in past days
the frame existing in small minds
only indebted to their own kind

dictating what could be
by the pages with red print
intolerance by mirage
projected from frightened hearts

if only they could relate
to the breadth some exclaim
staying true to themselves
while the world sees much less.
