Poems: Starfish Lives & Inner War

by stewart

Starfish Lives


A brown hair boy

Searching for starfish by the ocean.

Keeping all he finds

Wanting to possess beauty.


Placed in a pail

The starfish lives

Evaporated with the sea water.


A grown man remembers

And will not contain

Another living thing.





Inner War


The hardest battles

Are not fought in fields

Or on seas, but within ourselves.


We are the enemy

Who ravages

Every defenseless position
