So Safe, Am I?

January 19, 2008
By Bob Cirino, Lincoln University, PA

So safe I am
In shadows tears
The corner bends
Tomorrow fears

On axis spin
This tipsy world
The scars still hurt
For many years

And though we build
With miry clay
The stars still dance
For debts were paid

When these eyes close
In search of peace
They juggle worlds
For man to keep

The lamb hast lain
In fields of thorn
A wool of blood
A kingdom born

And though we paste
On eyes of dark
The pages turn
In light of day
