Passage Of Change

when a manner of inner meaning breaks 
the surface we’re caught between where 
organic sufficiency intervenes and those 
aching pains not neatly hidden away; its 
too late to rephrase whose substance is 
dramatically on display here - it won't go 
away easily, and when it does scars will 
remain like a plague of failed restraint 

you doing anything about that comes in 
agreeing vague belief isn’t referenced to 
the question whether you’re powerless - 
you know that already, or it’s an attempt 
to ease inevitability as passively phased 
and orchestrated passages of change
