do not misunderstand me

April 13, 2011 9:47 am EDT

do not mistake
my kindness
for weakness
for infortiftude
for a lack of fire, verve, strength

i am beauty
i am softness
i am flight
i am love

and yet

i am the tower
stretching to heaven's gate
i am the root
of the ancient redwood
i am the wave
crashing on the beach
beneath the timeless cliffs
of eternity

i am creation
i am destruction
i am the fullness
of masculine ardor
of writhing passion
of unmaskable longing
of unshakable truth


do not mistake
my kindness
for a lack
of pure and utter passion
of towering strength
of masculine perfection

am man
