Untainted and Gritty

And
Are we not gold?
One and all of us
Shiny, raw and
Glorious – untapped even.
Jewels of violence
Bearers of heavy guilt
Refining ourselves
At least on the outside
Yet still remaining
Inside ourselves,
Pieces of glittery gold
Though broken into
A thousand unequal shreds,
Crude and pure
As the finest of gold can be

      1. Are you submitting your poems to magazines? You should. Good stuff. Grim and gritty, agreed, but its good grit. The kind of which I search in King’s books.
        Or maybe collect them all and publish them via a publisher (traditional) or go the self-publish road. I’d buy it, and I’m a tough buyer.

      2. I’ll consider those routes sometime bro.. I’ve definitely been considering it.. but I’ll have to get out of some little quagmires and I’ll have to consider my personal idiosyncrasy – the fact you wrote it doesn’t mean it’s yours. I’m gonna die poor asf
