For My Soul Mates
I'm just a bag of ivory bones
by Anna Livia
A heart that breathes compassion
A flower vase of faith and hope
A clock that ticks the time away.
A brain that tries to fill each day
With something that expresses me.
Though it be simple
And not please
More learned souls than I,
I feel I should not apologize,
If I say
It's not for them
