like a doe in a castle – July 20


like a doe in a castle I live a

protected life. no gunmen walk

my streets, or terrorize my

neighborhood, food is there

anytime I need, and health care.


so why do crazed people now

shoot guns in movie theaters

and normal looking transients

bomb busses, or suicide, as if

it was just another ways to protest.


changed hearts are what we need

said the man on the radio as a

throw away line. I don’t know how

you do that, he said,

and moved on.


the doe sits semi innocently within

the castle walls forgetting that it

too has had to be redeemed.

from anger, pain, disillusionment
