Where did I place I,
the capital, the stamp?
The stem that propped success
Where did I get lost?
as not looking so straight as before
And falling into stand,
but cannot find the footprints
where heels were dug so deep.
Searching back to written as proper
or so it feels
Once I was drawn in water,
a line dividing fishes
now tides remember
So I ask where is I?
but pray to forget.
Could it be that I once flew
I spread my wings across oceans blue
Or could I once have slept in trees
And eaten the berries, the ants and the bees
With every breath I feel grasses grow
As waters stream through channels below
The bones of me were found in sand
Washed upon shores and carried to land
Sunsets kiss the rocks I’ve called home
Miles I’ve travelled to places unknown
All that I dream, I’ve been there before
I’ve cried many times, familiar to war
Wild are my eyes like the hunting bear
Like the tired boar and the frightened hare
So intricate is the nature of me
I’ll not question who I think I should be
As I am all the wonders of this earth
I am the cycle of life from death to re-birth
Today I am grateful for human resilience. For the strength we hold in our hearts, our minds, our soul. One day our hearts can feel frozen, the next melting waters feed our growth, our understandings.
There is nothing we are thrown that we cannot withstand, we keep going until we stop yet even then our spirit merges to a place so mysterious it has fed the imagination of a million generations. There is nothing we know for certain yet I truly believe that deep down, we have an understanding for everything.
As the earth rolls from pink skies to darkness, there is no end or beginning, just a continuation of movement and we glide, we soar, we soak in the changing view.
All happens for a reason and I am grateful for faith, trust and universal love as that is what holds us tightly through unchartered territory. Thank you for melting hearts, they are never wasted, only absorbed.
