Freaks by Nature

Such an anxious child in trouble
playing the daily double
… deriving pleasures all a-jumble …
Stumbling over rocks & rubble
traipsing through the jungle,
entangled in ivy & ever-humbled
… running with the rumble of thunder …

Outnumbered by an even dozen
practicing my art,
recovering from yet another fumble
in the game of life,
designed to stop the bleating,
hoarse with all the pleading
… from deep within my heart …
