What Heaven Sent

I've walked at a peculiar angle As I've laughed at peculiar circumstances I've aged in the most peculiar of vacuums And went on to love in the most normal of ways I've worked in a spirit of defiance As I've traveled the many miles from compliance I've lived within the confines of the moment And written those things I could never speak I've seen the footsteps of giants Made by the intrepid feet of the smallest of men As the mirrors of my past have risen in blind reflection I've come face to face with the only adversary I will ever fear I've asked the age old questions knowing there are no answers I’ve taught the unschooled a language they will teach again I have vowed to seek recovery for what the iconoclasts have broken Until truth reclaims from power —what was heaven sent (Philadelphia Airport: August 1st, 2015)

This walk thru depths of philosophy grabbed my attention and held me to the end. I was enamored with much of the phrasing - unique. Most lines spoke to me straight on. You've got a style with a color all its own, at least in this piece. All the best ... CayCay
