sacred

when you fell
from your mother
you were the apple
of her eye

such a dear
little babe
with a thorn
in your cry

a squirming
fertile
wild agenda
taking seed inside

the walls could never
hold you back
damned
if they didn’t try

your momma prayed
for you,
singing
all through the night

you grew tall
in the sunshine
picking diamonds
from the ire

a fearless
little lamb
braiding snakes
into wire

your bleeding
sacred
burnished heart
pulsing red with fire

the walls could never
hold you back
damned
if they didn’t try

your momma prayed
for you,
singing
all through the night
