i believe in you

I say

We’re going to be ok

 

Though

I don’t know

How it’s gonna go

Hope to show

Belief in what we sow

 

Our reaping

Will justify the leaping

 

Future clarity

Making past hilarity

 

The 

 

Feared confusion

Of now

Turned infusion

Of wow

 

We made it thru

Again

Hindsight view

When

The faith that grew

Then

Like I almost knew.

 

Dreaming is encouraged during this. When limitations threaten to dwindle all to nothing, everything is illuminated attainably possible. Restraints before seen obsolete and mirage-like. Fear melts in the face of courage challenged by an existential cleansing of all that came before. Turn around, bright eyes. Your life is and always was yours alone. Decorate it as if it will forever be your shelter in place from the scary effigies your adolescence carved to keep you questioning the sanctity of your spirit. For you are holy and worthy of any height you’ve yet dared imagining. Dream your universe on the other side of this and so it shall be. A stunning display of soul and song, you. They will see, and then their hearts will smile big and sigh comfortably.

  1. A rich and meaningful evocation for such disruption. I share your hope and optimism in the beauty and your words show this is possible.

    I love this poem that is followed by a not quite poem-none-the-less as if this is the necessity. “Poetry is not a luxury.” A. Lorde
