We learn and endure
Expose and secure
What we want to be known yet silenced.
We invite and allure
No behavior demure
But pretend we are coy and quiet.
Can you not speak,
Will I not seek
Something that makes sense in the end?
With no intention to defend
nor to amend
Maybe it won’t make sense in the

Is it worth all the anguish-
worth all the trials,
worth every maybe
before ‘nother denial,
worth every sadness
and madness
that stays
and worth all the waiting-
heart-wrenching delays?
Is it worth the confusions, silence and wishing?
Because one day I won’t be missing
you.

Justified June
mastered my reasons
for making time mine
within this season
‘s greetings have shown
that it may be known
that I really know
nothing at all.
For I seek
and I’ll find
what is
almost mine
with my Father’s hands
always holding mine.
Yours He does hold
and I can’t be this bold
without adhering
to what can be
controlled.
He not I
will justify
the rest of June
and all of July.
But there is a day
only known to me
that will be revealed
in your mind and sea-
oceans will rage
unlatching each cage
that clouds
your clarity within
this age.
Sea will meet sky
within each eye
justifying the reason we say
goodbye.

-Justified July*
