BE

This morning there will be no defenses,

no walls, no gates, no fences,

no barriers, no wounds, no weapons;

I will simply be.

There’s no past, no future, no time,

no foes, no friends, no crime,

no lovers, no emotions, no mistakes;

there is simply me.

Layer by layer just being will peel

off blood of war and buckshot and steel

and grime of the earth from which I will rise;

Clearly I will see

The rainbows and spring blooms that are sure to follow

the storm and the changes that I’ll gladly swallow.

As one chapter closes another shines open

in the story of me.
