After rewatching the Linkin Park event honoring the life of Chester Bennington again last night, I found myself eternally thankful for the unwavering courage, skill and compassion Mike Shinoda has shown during all this, already so painful and close to home for the man, and in the late hours, before I drifted off to sleep in bed, I wrote this down on my phone.
When things break down,
from weariness and rust.
It’s the shiniest cog in the machine,
that’s left to gather up the dust.
But all things get their due.
