To Succumb

First born, and yet the last
still left within a state
of an unacknowledged verity
by those who ought to be his family

How does one alone
find home again?

When here, a hand
is reaching out to him
with the promise of a love
he always thought in vain

and oh, an instant
of pure pain
as he finally lets go
the loss and gain
of all that is

succumbing to
one everlasting
moment of true love
when one alone
in unity
finds home again at last . . .
