I sit

Eyes of wary intent
Ears for danger
Mind posed in defiance
Displaced anger

Silent in thought
Icy walls to melt
No safe place
Hiding a singular welt

I sit

Searching the room
Studying them all
Who to hold up
Who to make fall

Him Ive selected
He is not safe
Never lose sight
Study his face

I sit

My selected one
His heart wounded?
Hes like me?
His life offended.

Forgive me brother
My walls must crumble
Take my hand
Separated well stumble

We sit

We are one
Our journey long
No walls between us
Together we belong

Balanced (My goal)

There is symmetry
In self-reflection
Life exemplified
Grace personified

I wonder how many of us in the room felt the same way. I don't know that I was looking for threat, but I was certainly wary. There were certainly people that had orange flags hovering over them.

Yet, a bunch of blokes became a community. Who'd have thought it possible?



Everybody here's got a story to tell
Everybody's been through their own hell
There's nothing too special about getting hurt
Getting over it, that takes the work

Hi, my brothers.

Yep, those WoR's are something, aren't they?

So much much gain. Powerful words.

A group of lost boys (then), who just happened to be men (now).

A diverse group of men...who soon would become fraternal brothers, for life.

Or, as i say my brothers, forever into eternity.

Love, compassion & understanding, the substance that binds us together, forever into eternity.

That's my feelings, my brothers.

Heal well my brothers, heal well.
