The scales

sayf

I’m brutal savagery,
My only defeat is kindness and decency.
-W.E.

A tornado of words,
A hurricane of emotions,
Contained only by the umbrella of kindness,
Guided by the sails of decency.
Of no avail is all my brutality,
All of my physicality,
War horse of savagery,
Seen images and fought battles no eyes see,
When the subtlety,
The humility,
The generosity
Of sacred law binds me,
Keeps me,
Safely,
From oppression,
And transgressing my boundaries,
Be guided, don’t wander aimlessly,
Have a code, don’t succumb to frivolities.
-W.E.
