honest ground

Written by: Eden Cane

be on the ground
the honest ground
be still among the trees

be on the ground
beneath the mist
and hear the silence breathe

be on the ground
your naked birth
impressions in the clay

discard your clothes
your shallow girth
the habit you enslave

be on the ground
be far from hope
a womans wish to please

be on your feet
be in the street
be fighting for your gain

in equal poise
ignore the noise
stand focussed in the rain

be at the front
the final stint
the glory of defeat

be in the ground
in rest below
the tire of treading feet
