New Poem . . . “Body”


Earl Stewart, Jr.


Just a body,

To be stretched and strictured, thrown and throttled,

Used and abused,

Battered and beaten,

By somebody else,



Somebody please help me.

Hold me, please, somebody.

I just can’t get away.

I just can’t run away.

Any day now, changing is coming.

In some way and somehow, I’ll start running

For my life.

For I’m not just a body

To be used by somebody, just anybody.

I am somebody, not just anybody.
