Deeds and Words

"Down the beginning of plants
And animals and birds,
Water and Light, the earth and sky,
Is cast before you move,
And all your deeds and words,
Each truth, each lie,
Die in unjudging love."
-from This Side of Truth, by Dylan Thomas

Deeds and Words
by Carmen H Gray

Victorious victim
Oh, you win!  You win!
The suffering, the pain
The sympathy you gain
From a warped world
And the fabrications hurled
Creator of your own story
You place your heart in purgatory
A holding place
Unfixed in space
Until a symphony of songbirds
Relinquishes your deeds and words
