I’M A STRANGER

I’M  A  STRANGER  HERE  ON  YOUR   PLANET  EARTH

Last night on my Vampire show

a gorgeous

un-dead redhead

said   to a younger Vamp:

 

That conscience of yours

it will grow dimmer 

with time

You’re still young

and more   Human

 

So    the  Human conscience

grows stronger

with Time?         A sentiment rare & fine

 

You may think we were

all born with one

My child clients were –

but then it all     came  undone

 

When parents locked

them in closets

and made star shaped

burns      on their  arms      starved some    too

 

But what about  Love ?   they wonder       and ponder

 

Isn’t it the glue

that holds our tribe

together ?   Imbues us  with        Humanity

 

I struggle with the answer
