I Have A Friend, Tallen.
Many Years My Junior.
Raised By a Meth Addict.
Fought his Way through School.
Not to Be Aggressive. But to Merely Survive.
He worked in the Mailroom By Day.
University Studies at Night.
Working Tirelessly on his Law Degree.
His Girlfriend has Four Children.
A Victim of Domestic Abuse.
He Fathers them Tenderly.
Speaks of Her with so much Respect.
I love Tallen.
As the Talon of An Eagle Holds Onto It’s Prey…
So Does Tallen.
He’s Driven. Tenacious.
But, In His Presence, one Feels Like the Eagle.
He makes you Feel Strong. Able for Anything.
He even Feels like the Wind under your Wing.
Thanks for Stopping By the Office, Tallen. Thanks for the Updraft.
I Love You.
