To some the body is a temple,
A pagoda of perfection,
Built upon leylines of zen,
Spirituality making up the brick and mortar,
The human body sharpened to a spearpoint,
Physical prowess matched only by mental acumen,
Balance in all things,
These people are monks of the self,

It is an admirable way,
But it is not mine,
I’m more of a ronin of the road,
I walk and suffer what comes,
My body is more of an overloaded carriage,
Ramshackle yet sufficient,
Unbalanced yet relentless,
I get by in my inferior way.

  1. Outstanding metaphors! The body is indeed fragile, strong, worshipped by some, and full of mystery. Oh my friend you nailed it!
    If it is even possible, I think you have outclassed your writing in this one.
    Kudos and Bravo!!πŸ™πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
