“Standing Tall”

among the poets

i stand tall,

not in the

abject beauty

of my poesy

or the

voluminosity

of my compounded works,

for i am

neither lauded

nor accomplished,

but rather

in the genuineness

of the

tortured soul,

a man on fire

with something

to say

as if mere words

could extinguish

the passionate flames

consuming me

from within
