Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

This poem describes a period of re-birth following a sudden and unexpected event
I brought truth
but they didn't want to hear it

I brought wholeness
but they cut me into parts

I brought my weaknesses
but they told me I could only be strong

I brought gentleness
but they told me I was wrong

I was a shapeless, free flowing entity
but I was made to fit between the lines

I had came with love and warmth
but the heat was stomped out, buried into earth under cold hard slabs

Flexed joints lose the yearn to stretch
Broken limbs lay in despair
Darkness encloses a failing heart

An earthquake shatters the ground and rattles me to my core
Thick grey stone cracks and caves under the rumbling force

Now piece by piece I break through
The earth that is ripping apart
My head is bowed as breaking dirt tumbles and rolls off my bare back
I feel the warm breeze at my neck
My heart beats soundly
My limbs find their place, my spine aligns

I am lifting up up up
Feeling light
Being light

I breathe the warm air deeply
As I lift my head up to the sky

My soul is naked
Freely flowing
No shapes, no lines
Just me
Wholly me, in my entirety

My unassailable voice is clear:
I am here
