community news, Randy Couture Photo via IG Fighter Post    Why dont they tell you , why dont they 
Explain ? When we are children and tho...

Why don’t they tell you , why don’t they
Explain ? When we are children and those
Paid to instruct us are handed down the
The unfortunate and skin reddening task of
Explaining the mechanics of these bodies
And how they fit together , why don’t they
Tell us what truly matters ? Why don’t they
Leave the details of procreation for us
To discover and instead tell us what will
Become of our hearts ? What will become not
Of the muscle and fiber , the tendons and
Slow rivers of red that flow inside us , but
The piece of us that connects to all the
Hope and faith and belief and strength that
Lives quietly beneath the skin we decorate
With goosebumps , or scars . They should play
Us poorly acted videos filled not with the
Aging and changing that will befall us , but
With the haunting stretching and bending our
Hearts will endure . The bend past the point
We would swear is the breaking and beyond
What we were raised to believe we could
Survive . That they will swell and be filled
With more joy than we think they can contain
And past the level our ribs can protect . Why
Don’t they tell us that it’s at these exact
Moments , the bending and swelling , that
They leak . They leak on both sides of too much ,
Or what we’ve convinced ourselves is too much .
The drops splash down somewhere inside us and
The ripple extends to all we will ever do .
All we can ever see . The echo will haunt us
Like ghost sounds in abandoned homes and
Never can we exorcise them away .
