BREATHLESS FLOWERS (Poem By: Dr. Billy Alsbrooks)



Poem By: Dr. Billy Alsbrooks 

The expensive possibilities of color give way to forbidden whispers 

I roar with defiance through the halls of the establishment 

My enormous thirst for change has pitted me against them

But I refuse to be swallowed by their rejection 

Their breathless flowers leave the garden so void 

Without apology I join the cult of the new

My mind shall not borrow their timid eyes to see

I steer my steps toward the frontier of impossible 

Daring to get in the ring with timeless truths 

Questioning all their sacred held beliefs 

I journey to the darker reaches of the soul 

Refusing to bang on the door for acceptance 

Their empire of authority collapsing on itself 

As they succumb to the rise of the Avant-Garde

Having no appetite for their tyranny of respectability

Storming the bastions of tradition, I seek life beyond the veil 

Breathless flowers…
