The Unsung Heroes
Shivers and chills down your spine,
Runnin’ along the bones that have grown
The bones, they feel that ache through your heart
They collide with each other,
Only to find something they should’ve known.
The Ribcage tells all the others,
About this heart that it holds
The Ribcage said how it couldn’t feel a thing,
Until it listened to those heartbeats for all these years.
The stomach interrupts,
It tells the tale of many days
When food reached, yet how it was missing the pleasure of a feast
Mouth seconds this and adds,
How it happened to it too many times
When it drew a smile but felt no joy,
It lost count of how many times it lived that lie
Ribcage came forward and sighed,
As to take a decision about their sire
Their Sire, who gave them this humble abode,
Fulfilled their needs to let them grow
He is their home.
“Let’s keep going on,” all of them said at once!
It’s the least they could do to make their humans whole.
To let you know,
How much they love you,
As they learned from the best.
Even when your world crumbles, you’ll find spaces to grow.
So, take care, dear
Take care and take care of you more.
