A Better Spin

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

If they are ironclad

We don’t mind doing that

The weight is heavy

But we are protected from the arrows of

Question

Ridicule

And most opposition 

We hang it out there

Our hearts softly vulnerable

But metal gears

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

*

Rolling rock is

Charging on

Down the road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Driven directly down

And blazing as we dug her hot

Sunny thinking

Shadows’ memory

Mere moments fade as

Tomorrow glows

*

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

Sometimes out on a limb

Soon: a bird on a wing

The heights are wild

But we are protected from the talons of

Apprehension

Nervousness

And higher opposition

We spread it out here

Our hearts hardly vulnerable

Now flying free

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

*

Soaring hawk is

Charging on

Above the road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Ascending straight up

And shining as she has her shot

Now sun is sinking

Earth’s memory

Lost moments return

As tree tops pose

*

Musical beat

like feet on a branch

Walking the street

or coming in to land

A juggernaut

She’s the time we’ve got

The sun goes up

The sun comes down

To stay on top

We follow right around

Poetry in motion

It’s the way we look at it

We can’t getDown

If we don’t give in

We get straight up

With a better spin

*

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

If they are in tact

it’s best to do that

Sharing connects us

And we are protected from all times

No comparison

Stereotypes

or tiresome opposition

We climb over the hill

Our hearts mutually vulnerable

Machines appear

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

*

Lucid talk is

Charging on

Up this road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Heading right around

And staying on course with her spot

For calm thinking

Today’s memory

Moments to make peace

Find future so close

*

Musical beat

like heating up plans

Perfectly complete

For the causes we stand

A juggernaut

She’s the time we’ve got

The sun goes up

The sun comes down

To stay on top

We follow all around

Poetry in motion

It’s the way we look at it

We can’t get down

If we don’t give in

We get straight up

With a better spin
