The Curse He Adorns

December 12, 2007
By Caroline Sullivan, Marietta, GA

The curse he adorns
the addiction he scorns
the plague of being born

A past he can't deny
hidden in his bloodshot eyes

an innocence long overdue
destroyed by the future he knew

the revelations of the past
shattered upon impact
devoured by the pack

Hungry and eager
the resistance meager
the resurrection of their leader
