There is so much I wish to say
but I can’t find the words
for the feelings I feel,
for the pictures in my head,
for an inexplicable clarity I have of things
which burdened, perplexed me
for such a long time,
my mind and my heart is sparkling
with visions and ideas,
there’s a newfound peace and joy inside
bursting free that may find me laughing out loud
when I walk barefoot across the lawn in the sunshine.
I see pictures behind pictures,
I hear sounds within sounds,
I see hues I have not seen before,
taste tastes I have not savoured before.
Make no mistake, I still feel stuck
in this old world,
my new world is not yet ready,
not yet mine to live in,
but this dysfunctional mess we are all finding ourselves in,
will not be for very much longer,
the edges are rough, the story is fraying,
the lie no longer has pillars to hold it up,
and while the old sinks and disintegrates,
my dawn, filled with love and light,
is growing brighter with every passing moment.
I understand my purpose,
I have love in my heart
and a warrior in my soul,
soon we will all be together,
my family, my tribe.
