Bleed



Bleed

I want to change my life.

I really want to change my

I can really want to change

I can and really want to

Can I bleed?


History speaks one consistent truth.

To change anything, blood must flow

mine, another’s, red must show

in hues varied like crystals-Bismuth.


Then,

Until I have bled,

Body parts flung into the sea

Habits ripped from their homes within

Each split sucking a little life from me

and

When

I healed as I’ve said

Old ensigns no longer a lee

Unbound from my great olden kin

Allegiance new, I am now truly free


free to realize the problem all along

was “I”,

amidst subtly seen selfish sins.


I now fearlessly bleed.

Background Information: No change can happen anywhere unless we sacrifice something. The word sacrifice implies death, injury, or at the very least, loss. To bleed is to sacrifice life's very water. To change, I must bleed.
