What Shell of Man

What shell of man
I have become
What twisted end
this road derives
I fell to earth
and shattered find
the flesh and bone
I gave to you

This hollow soul
knows not its end
but carves inside
my solitude
upon this cage
of ribs inscribes
with etchings how
I cried for you

From Adam’s rib
you were alive
I laughed to see
your smiling face
I longing looked
into your eyes
you were the blood
of every race
