Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao
I have never met you yet I mourn your sorrows
Tears run down my cheeks as every line of your letter shreds at my being.
Flash backs play a life I was strong enough to walk away from
But never forgetting the path I once walked alone.
I once asked for others to cry for me.
Now I wish only to cry with you.
Love is of no objective,
Life is of utter importance.
Do not bear the burden alone
For I shall carry you on my back
If you fall to weak to run from the cowardly lion.
To open fields I shall bring you to run free.
Where no corners appear for you to curl up into.
Breathe for me the open air
And continue to breathe
Until father time tells this old woman to stop.
And mother earth accepts you back into her womb.
You speak sorrows but your life has yet begun.
For many years still await your forgiveness.
