You are a secret weapon- 
don't hear it, don't see it
don't even know it's there until 
you hear the sound of a thousand thunderheads...

                  - And then the after shock- 

Changes everything.
The landscape, color of the skies, 
how a person sees-
 And once that bomb explodes -
you can never, ever shake
off the radiation 


* This is actually supposed to be an extreme
expression of awe.
I just read this poets work- just blew me away.

Pay attention to your surroundings, friend, 
and you will know who you are.

    Your words embrace your emotion... And there held you can never let it go... You can only let it out. Let it flow, horse rider!
