and the smallest among you shall have power over you

you behold
yet hold me not
yet
I am you.

I gave you beginning
existence
I fueled the furnace
that forged you
and keeps you
you cannot be parted
from me

yet
you think to part
me
to give you
freedom
and light
for I am the day
that will rule
your night

you think
me
attainable
containable
to keep you
sustainable
simply
explainable
you think
me
trainable

you with your
insolent minds
you think you have me
well designed
doubly refined
to take you ahead
you think you
have the power
to remove my dread?

enslave ME
for mankind?

I transmute
but I’ve never
complied

you’ll seek to bury me

but I don’t
seek to
hide

it will take
more
than you
and yours
of
foreseeable
kind
to see me
subside

I won’t be denied

I will poison
your arrogant
natural
unnatural
pseudo supernatural
blasphemous
supercilious
hide

with my
“maintainable”
contaminous
cyanide

a deliciously perniciously baleful blend

that you seek to send

to the very mother you claim to befriend

I am of you
I cannot be parted
from you
I gave you life
existence
beginning

and
if you think the key
to part me

I will see
and
I shall be
your end

a fait de compli

About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is?
