“Metanoia” by Mary Kimber


Jake Et Al

– Poetry By Guenevere Kimber



There once was a snake named Henry Jake
Who had made a big mistake
Jake was a girl
And made all others hurl
So she changed her two names
To James



I hide
From those who
Will never understand
Because when people don’t
Understand they don’t care
And when people don’t care
They don’t help and when
They don’t help they
Show no kindness
To those like
I hide because
I am new



It is dark
The lights are out
I am alone
And that’s no doubt
I’m standing tall
That doesn’t matter
To you at all
And I don’t care
Even if you stare



A mirror of your voice
A reflection for your ears
A blindfold on your eyes
Echo, Echo, Echo

Nothing different of a single voice
Nothing like it for you to hear
Nothing to see it
Feel it
