Kindred Spirit


Like a captive hurtling towards freedom

He reaches out for the fangs

Of the spitting spigot.

Groping warily for this wayward  son

She catches the sweet stings on her hands

And becomes a reluctant convert.


Perhaps he heard the calling

Beyond the swirling mists

Causing him to skirt the warning

Of those scolding fists.


He is of my tribe

A pursuer of his cause

Who lets the indignations slide

For the greater good of the cause.


I shall follow this virgin road

Undeterred by the premonitions of my friend.

For like the child who went against the mode

I aim to triumph in the end.
