An Unspoken Understanding of Self

I think nothing in this life is certain.
You have to fight for those you love
and the things that you believe in
and to stand up for those elements
you don’t believe in too,
to have faith in your own thoughts
and the decisions made by you.

I don’t believe in a Name or religion
beyond that of Love and Life.
So when it comes to vows and birth
I’ll do it under that name alone,
stand at an altar of my own creation
and bring my children into a world
they’ve made up on their own.

But recognition of shape and light,
and its weight in the eyes of others,
is something I mind to be mindful of
and simply see a guise of love.
So for them, of course, I will pray.

For Ben

What?

What’s a few tears in the tale of a lifetime?
What’s a few years in the scheme of it all?
What’s a few hundred to keep conversation?
What sort of price can you put on a call?
What are the things that will make it go faster?
What are the moments that have to be shared?
What will you remember in years that come after?
What else can you do when it’s Love that’s declared.
