One White Man's Spirit

 White Men

are Spirits

Some seem static - perhaps stuck

Some flowing

with the windswept smoke

-

The Spirit of One White Man

may intersect

with Others

Whether attacking

Sharing

Intersecting in Part

Overlapping Spirit(s) then

-

Tis easy

to sashay in place

a Spirit

at Peace

No Need

for Stirring

of the Brew

- or

To Be in Battle

with(in) Oneself

Churning, Spiraling

seemingly

out of Control

-

Tis Much Harder

to Struggle

with the Demons

The Trauma of One's Being


- Tis Much Harder

to Confront

one's Soul

Struggling Within

Pushing Outward

(trying to) Reach

Beyond

Towards

The Spirit

of Other

White Men

-

Where one's Essence

Challenges en masse

Saying

Do This!

Do That!

White Men

Must - We Must

You Must

-

The Spirit Then

Meets Resistance 

Apathy - 

or Pushback

-

Tis More 

from Within

The "real" Spirit

to See

Within

Individual White Men

an Important

Part 

of:

His/Their Heart

- Speaking

Connecting Within

-

and/or

Speaking 

to Multiple White Men

Together

Connecting - Individually 

(though the recipients are Multiple)

Sharing Within

a Depth

So Hard

to Find

- Each White Man's

Essence

Touched

in a Different Way

-

Underneath

This All

The Spirit

of a Single White Man

May

or May Not

- as He Learns (or not)

to Be

More

of Whom

He

Really - IS!
