STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE

Elevated and provocative.
Exposed.
Carved in stone
and burnt in wood.
You are preserved
in every single element of life.
They name you,
yet not applying labels,
and you’re the benchmark
of their beginning and the end.
The paths they take,
it’s all a reference to you –
their dedication is immense.
Erotic.
Blind.
They take their steps
to match your shadow,
and their spine
is in the perfect line
of your bare shoulders.
They wish for that long-waited cross,
a new-breed of human.
You know they think of you
As someone godly.
Are you?

    Humans crave the existence of someone greater than themselves, as hope that they too, or someone at least, can truly be excellent, that it’s possible. When we can’t find that person, we crave it so badly we’ll create him or her, fabricate the divine. Nobody can stand on that pedestal.
