tumbled glory

We are the worst and the best
the saddest excuses
and the most magnificent
of dreams…we are human
in all our tumbled glory
the faded shadow of a burning
burning light…
a light blinding the universe
our essence our voices
with our echoes and stains
the worst and the best
centered by our grandiosity
mega-maniacal within
our own orbits we choose
we borrow and beg for
forgiveness…while destroying
the things we ask for
the worst and the best
dying and dead, we live
while dying and die living lies
to sustain dreams
we’ve never wanted and
never have…yet foist
on others as if they too
believed…the worst and the best
we are tireless
in our pursuit of sleep
energized by our obstinate
determination to remain
motionless and
unwilling to share
generously apportioning
enough guilt to assuage
to assume, to ascertain
the worst and the best
we are human
in all our tumbled glory
the faded shadow of a burning
burning light…
