The will of the human body and the mind matches the dignity of freedom a person has as they are fighting for their breath.
Freedom is the right to one's dignity as a man. Archibald MacLeish
It Is Held In a Signature
A man’s breathing is depending
on his signature.
A black and blue journey
of a hand that shook ferociously
on the 5th Tuesday, the day he
signed for his own life of freedom.
“I will scrap the inside of your
lung, removing the creamy infection
that is consuming your air.”
A strong debilitated body,
a straight-spine will,
a pen which respects his dignity
as a Dr. confirms yes sir and Mr…
His patient looks into his doctor's
eyes and prays for experience--
A gentleman slowly signs his name
and wishes the surgeon good luck,
not good bye.
