A Xillenial’s Gift…

January 10, 2017


Bridge over

The river Paradigm’s

Melodic Meander

Through yon modern times

The good old days

Used to pay the fines

That bore the title

Between the lines

-Catch that phrase

‘Fore its rhymes

Step right… this way

Shoot a gander

Left

Out-in the cold

Buy nothing

But theft

We had

Been

Born between

Night and Day’s

Mid-river means

And

Intrepid haze

-Our hard hearts or Jesus-

Saves

Dreams

Over the troubled water

We’re drowning in

Our voice

Flowing into some

Early graves’

Inheritance of Royce

Driven to secede

Excel

At making

Some

Waking waves

Noise

Through the consequence of choice

Tiles

In The Divine’s mosaic

He plays

Us

As We are nobody’s Xillenials

Now

Bold in the future’s

Passing ways.
