Too Often, Too Long

Lashes of pain stung too long
Inflicted too frequently
Cutting deeper than the flesh
Reoccurrence the drive to overwhelm
Lacking understanding of this accountability
For there is no sanity in the selection
Nor the severity of punishment
By the unseen bearer of the whip
The storm wails on in tune with the people
An unending dirge of the soul
Floating in saline loss of different shapes
Losing grip on this surreal existence
But still having today’s air to breathe
We stand and march on to the end
