THE TATTOO

FAMILY

Tattoos on an arm are painful things,
Are they a lasting label of an impulse, meant
for those souls who are troubled, trying to fit in?
She seeks not to soar with rebels wings!
Fluid, flowing pierced lines, have much more intent
as cut curves trace a word upon her skin.

It brings honour, celebration, love’s praise,
Devotion so special, heaven’s own consent
A soft, sweet song, a tattoed hymn
Her beauty bows, the Father now engraves
His Name upon her skin.
