The Rising Up Again


it rises up
towers above
to come crashing down
upon me

why the again
and again
and again

has not for understanding
been searched outside
and within

where lies the understanding
that might be enough
to avoid

what will rise up again
and tower above

are these ghosts my own
those imposed upon me

where lies enough
that might be
to avoid

where is but not return
where is not I
at the end of to where
would be the running

where is the exit
if not but inside

where is not
the rising up again
the towering above
