The Inward Man

Standard

Day after day the outward man crumbles and breaks down, and the inward man is born and grows in wisdom and knowledge. Thomas Merton

Leaf-bare,
swaying, slave
to the storm, I wait
for the gale
to drive me down,
dismember me
scatter my shattered limbs
across winter’s ground,

while deep inside
my cambrian core
life persists!

I’ll survive.

Beyond my limit
I will arise!
