the boy who never blew up

10 Jul

keeping to himself

never a grin

too much on his mind

for a friend

the boy who never blew up

all packed tightly in his belly

he keeps himself steady

his sentences are short but precise

never silly

girls whisper and giggle

the boy who never blew up

the bombs have turned to rust

buried deep down in his toes

but bombs are bombs and one day

maybe this day

their blast will make the man

leaving it’s mark

for the rest of us to ponder
