Gentlemen

19 Aug

Poesy plus Polemics

without scars
I’d be no one
worth loving
unaware of
pain’s value
in fashioning
gentlemen
imprints that
neuter aggression
and mollify ego
edified marks
of humility
badges of
healed-over
suffering
bold psychic runes
that attest
tempered character
traits cued
for empathy
first among
honest vows
passion enjoys
for a lifetime

(Inspired by a recent poem from fellow blogger Roxi St. Clair at http://roxistclair.com/)
