“Every path is the right path. Everything could’ve been anything else. And it would have just as much meaning.”

Nemo Nobody

Leave the bruises
black and blue
Let the scars run deep

Peel the scabs off
one by one
Let your exposed heart bleed

Forget the inscriptions
on the grave
6 ft^3 of a home

The author's comments:
Inspired by a story about a greedy man-
the moral of the story was: all the land a man ever needs is enough land to fit his grave into.
My poem, on the other hand, can be (and was meant to be) interpreted differently.
