do we have enough 

will the silences of winter
break us down or build us up-
will our pasts behave like choir boys, stay in time,
will they re-emerge and scream and sting our eye
make us blind to hope and happiness

do we have enough to pluck the guts 
from the chasms of experience
to fashion buds of love 
from the fiery depths of ego's lust,
have we evolved enough to trust again
when our old gray world blitzes in so unwelcoming 
swinging dried bloodied smiling fists of what's the use and what ifs,
fill our starving souls with blackbird piss

do we have enough to become us
