Intransigence by Kay Ryan


as a quality
rejects influence
and encourages oddity.
"I will not bemoved."
It says most movingly
to anyone
touched by irony.
For intransigence
lives in a host
and all guests
must pay a cost.
It is worn
and functioned at by mortality.
The flesh erodes
beneath it gradually.
What was fierce
becomes cantankerous
it is cruel for the host
and for the intransigence.

Christmas Season (Where is the gift of love in humanity)?


Days turn cold
as minds become restless,
not much!
Time teaches lessons,
Improper relations suck,
Yes, someone out there enjoys her "self defined' love,
involving a married man who refuses to divorce,
but forced to adore her,
what's the pride?
what's the fruits of such love?
children have turned into "reasons" or weapons
for lasting ties, money is a key,
what if he stops giving you money, do you still love him to death?
what if he tells you that he never loves or loved you,
he connects because you make your emotion
too loud, too big, too dangerous....
so sad that in this world,
women don't feel their own worthiness,
do you need to offer your body for momentary feed?
people differ,
you walk your own path,
take your own medicines,
don't blame others for your pains,
bless you.
