Responsibility

Duty as responsibility
is a conception of a loyalty
theorized in minds of men
whose hearts were fading in the sands
of time

Solitary, standing in the arid waste
of air without the taste
of moisture's ease
no vibrance of green growth to please
the eye

Sun-struck is the mind without the heart
blinded is the flesh until it starts
to integrate an understanding
of all that once was reprimanding

Ownership can block the flow
of experience that dances, glows
Freeform, as the body moves
while flesh, now freed from preset grooves

moves in ways it never knew before
running through an opening door
Responding in an ever deeper way
to the child inside that plays

enchanting music, symphony
that vibrates through eternity
for truly nothing stands alone
Listen, hear the tone

of unity
found in response, ability
to weave with light the tapestry
of life
