brutal world

what weak wall am i
what shelter for my littlest
from the evil tide that pours
through all my ragged rips
runs through my wounds
and past my grasping fingertips
to drown them before my eyes

how is a father to keep
all his small hearts safe
from broken reaching hands
without killing the whole world…
i want to kill the whole brutal world
