Steeling in

I stand by you

with my imperfect soul at the ready

to point out that you need not be

so very proper all the time

curse fate

curse words

curse of love not felt

or given

I stand by you

and wait

for the eyes that are weary

so I may soothe them

with smiles lighter

and more simply given

when the heavy has a weight

that presses

most intimately

along ones spine

seeking to break your back

but you need not worry

you have a steel spine
