a body of contradiction

a body of contradiction

*

a body of weary congealed with pockets of greed

a body of integrity injected with hubris

a body of well-earned trust palsied by naivety

a body of selflessness given to bouts of sly selfishness

a body of dedication suffocating from a life of mistakes never learned

*

one man’s self-inflicted wounds

diseases his whole family
