To Be Home

'You are the beautiful half  
 of a golden hurt'  
 
               -Gwendolyn Brooks  
 
 
The world is loveless,  
but I remember love;  
I seal it in a tiny box,  
place it on a shelf above.  
All the riots of my youth  
rage among immiment falls  
as ways of men I never knew  
fill my eyes as Hell resumes.  
All the strife my legs can carry  
will I only carry back home  
should home remember me  
after all my rage is gone.
