there’s a boy
as always there is
but this boy
this beautiful boy
he is different
he is different
as always they are
but this difference
this deluge of differences
he is special
he is special
as always they are
as each sunrise differs from the next
as each sunset differs from the previous
he is special
to the poor
he lends a helping hand
to the distraught
he opens wide his arms
love compassion grace
he taught me
what could never be taught
he showed me
what could never be shown
beauty happiness peace
i walk away now
from knowing him
from loving him
with his teachings
with his preachings
I walk away now
seeing beauty in the sordid
seeing love in the vengeful
seeing happiness in the rain
seeing grace in the blundering
I walk away
loving my life
