The Vulnerability of Man
by Rev. Lewis
Mortality and legacy,
Go hand and hand.
But it’s vulnerability that makes a mortal man.
Taught to be stone,
But enough pressure will turn stone to sand.
Show a moment of weakness.
Told to suck it up, be a man.
Keep those raging waters bottled behind that damn.
Build your walls high enough,
and eventually you’ll stop giving a damn.
But these walls don’t come with bridges.
These moats will wash you away.
And I keep my archers at the ready.
To keep love away.
I wonder what my absent father thinks of me.
Continuing your legacy of solitude,
Hurting those closest to me.
Maybe one day I’ll put my pride away.
And be forced to face my own mortality.
THE VULNERABILITY OF MAN
Rev. Lewis expresses himself through music, poetry and deep conversations.
