For Korey…

brown lion looking up in macro lens photography


He wears his pain

smothered underneath baseball caps and high-class sneakers

Beneath his smile lies a man in want

of joy and happiness

A quiet containment

created from stolen moments

in adolescence

he cannot get back

Still, he wears his wisdom

in the light shining

with an aura of a thousand opulent stars

ready for their king to arrive.
