In the Flesh
by Lexy Yocom

Climbing through the towers
Selfishness and guilt
Taking advantage of power
Racing up our own hills
It’s crazy how we all think
It’s crazy what makes us crave
Remember all that drown or sink
Forget not to save
People who’ve been broken
Selfless creating mourn
Ones who’ve been outspoken
Shredded ripped and torn
Uses for our own worth
Body flesh and bones
Not stopping to think who we hurt
Making it all our own
This world is ours or so it may
Trust and love overthrown
Masked influence through the days
It’s only what is shown
Thrown over our own towers
Selfishness and guilt
No more left for power
Do you know how we have felt?
