Existing In Absurdity

Born linked
to the ancient ones

Channeled to a past spirit
Licking insight into the now

Instinctively being observant
Creating a discrete perception

Accepting things as they are
Not to question why
In a world of the ordinary

While seeking answers
Only to redefine normality

Follower of mother’s guidance
Learning right from wrong
In an air of tolerance

Avoiding strange charmers
Delivers of woe and fear

Fostering a mama’s boy
Not by design,
but by nature

Existing forever connected
To her very being
Desiring to mend her hurt

Nurtured in grandmother’s church
Hearing a calling without voices
Imparting salvation

Becoming blinded by faith
Only to be baptized in a tank

Receiving life’s real baptism
In the old swimming hole

Swinging from a rope
Sinking down with an arm
Pointing up to the light above 

A curiosity of girls
Given timid tutelage

Knowing only of
Their exclusive nature

Without objective scrutiny
Lacking any evidence
Querying a gentle lass

Show me yours
Will show you mine

Not yet understanding
The growth in the hand

Lying down by her side
Lost in original sin

Not resisting the call
Buried deep in the heart

Falling for her desire
Thinking of girl as a woman

Wondering at what age
A woman becomes a woman

And when woman
Stops being woman

Fancied by little girls
Fashioned by big girls

Becoming powerful as consort
Only to be lost in false piety

A spectacle of elevated humbug
The girl as a woman
A myth dreamed by boys

Loving the art of deception
Conceived by man loving woman
Only to become a ploy

Now questing a cure
For this curse of eve

Loathing the deception
In quest of a solution
Only to be lost in dark air

Searching a way out
Of this affliction

Can’t live with
Can’t live without
Existing in absurdity
