Today is a day
where I can’t validate
the phenomenon of a new breath
or the vibrant song in my heart.
The world outside,
adorned with charm
and miraculous brilliance,
gifts to our beings,
yet my eyes have lost it’s gaze,
veiled by deceitful trickery,
my spirit has become disconnected.
A knock at my door and I foolishly
let my past take a seat.
Burying my abundance of hope,
poisoning the beauty where I now nest.
My soul, roaring with intensity,
kicking and screaming for it’s removal,
trying to awaken this body that has become futile.
Relentless in her mission,
abandon never an option.
I’m exhausted by the battle within,
tired of the brutality that has
seized my mind.
On my knees,
needing forgiveness to embrace me,
not knowing it is there
waiting for me to embrace it.
My salvation is not coming,
it is perpetually alive in me.
I must hang on to my bridge of joy
that will lead me to my magnificence
There lies the power to remove the darkness
that no longer serves my divinity.
I will arise
I will endure.
