I’ve Learned; Remember

If I remember everything

can I leave this prison?

Now I’m ready

all I wanted

was a house in the country

where I couldn’t hear

anyone’s thoughts

but my own.

All I wanted

was to share my words

it’s now or never

and I’m getting ready.

I claim to love Earth

but not lately

I can’t stand what I’m seeing

what I’m hearing

and believing.

When will the false words stop

when will I be separated

from this place

you destroyed my home

murdered me

then stole all my belongings

but not this time

this time I’m ready

ready to take back

what is mine.

And they couldn’t believe I existed. That is what stuck out. The way that they looked at me with eyes that became wider and wider with disbelief yet relief. As moments before they were sprinting up the hill until my dog stopped barking when they slowly turned around and paced slowly towards us. As I had to focus on the reality that surrounded me, I heard “They do exist!” As if we both thought it at the same time. They with me and I with them. As it was an instinctual reaction for us all.  I perched up with excitement and they turned the other way. Slowly, they walked instead of ran out of fear. I said to look out for the lights and an understanding ensued.

And it was something they had to see for themselves. Beside a dog that used to bark. Now that dog no longer barks but understands to share the territory. After all, it was theirs too and she knows now. But just like them, I too have to see for myself. They recognized their own but forgot it existed. Even nature needs reminders that others are there. And I see it everyday. Not just from me but like them I had to see it for myself. I am like the deer.

Dark Nights of the Soul

The night was dark

and so was I

morning wasn’t any better

A reflection

from inside of me

everywhere I looked

nothing changed

I could not get out of it

although it happened suddenly

without much warning

I recognized it again

a familiar friend

eliminated as a foe

I recognized once more

it’s always a bit disappointing

quite easy to blame myself

although it doesn’t stay as long

I’m always forgetting

to just remember

remember what it was

that got me through

remember what I did

that got me here

I began to remember

to let go

it’s out of my control

the solution is not inside my head

but nothing concrete at all

it comes with time

and surrender

it always hurts

and shatters my world

into tiny little parts

but once those fall away

they are replaced

with much more

so much more

I just need to remember

it isn’t a punishment

but what I have asked for

If only I can remember
