I.

Bass Blaring

making ears fill with unsurfaced blood

nose rings

unearthly colors in hair

skulls on shirts

I am found

in the mist of these

II.

caculator in tow

laptop underarm

  too many books in a bag

  Harvard med. dreams fill swelled brains

  library after hours studying

  education being only priority

  I am found

 in the mist of these

III.

jeans always stained with paint

quiet never uttering a sound

alone is comfrotable enough

  only friends a brush and canvas

  negative past bringing only a dark future

  never trusting

  even the canvases

  I am found

  in the mist of these

IV.

  only thing ever known

  alcohol breath and rage to skin

  never hearing of love or worth

  society deemed a failure

  wasted and ruined

  pleas written on a box

  hurt in eyes of  forbidden locals

  I am found

  in the mist of these

For  I am the son of God

who died for all

not just for the sane and the rich

but for the broken and alone

For I am Jesus Christ
