My kidneys wrote a poem about themselves. Together, at the same time. Such a heavy burden.

everything you are

made up of 

and by this blood alone

let the unnecessary

pass through me

into the unknown

 

Fluidity

pressure

I regulate

and control

 

Remove all that negativity

control the balance

  harmony

  flow

 

Failure

syndrome

  disease

we alone

yet together

share in this trust

 

Alas, do not worry

about such things

 worry only for

what you bring

to me

 

For there are two of me

and even if one of us leaves

the burden will be one of ours

and ours alone

to retain

 release

 adjust

forged in flame

we shall amend

all the same

 

One grain of sand

at a time

created from clay

 

 Letting all the anger go

written in stone

you know my name
