A Tribute to Cory Huffman

I wrote this in tribute to Cory Huffman, a friend, the brother of a friend, the son of friends. After a stint with methamphetamines, the psychologist told him and his family that he would be mentality

The warrior is poorly understood

The revolutionary, ronin, knight errant


They preferred comfort over causes 

but we have taken our last stand; this stand 

is about respect. The primordial soul 

of man; self determination is - life. 


Rodents scurry the plague through heaven 

The rebel would not be called; hero. 

He resolved a final resolution 

his heart and mind beyond resurrection. 


Do not mistake this death a suicide 

His was a victory; he saved himself.

Great poem, though I wish it would of ended with one last line.

  "But, for how long" ?

The first stanza shoud be

The warrior is poorly understood,

the revolutionary, ronin, knight errant

or he who has no master -  is harder -

because the rebellion is worth life.

(it is a sonnet)
