Grace Ushering Out From The Deep 

a poem of grace
ushering out from the deep deafening darkness
to overtake the awkward wayward organ of hopelessness

demise in her/im's eyes
s/he rose
unmet by full remorse

they couldn't stop her/im

s/he went on anyway finding so many reasons to abandon the mystic ship
but no one said to
no one said to turn a corner on the truth
no one suggested to keep the rudder to the port of fear

its what they want
its what they need to be right but is it the only choice?

i don't think so
i trying to recommend other things to him
s/he's listening slowly turning the starboard way
life is showing better – good things
life is increasing its dosage

thank goodness
s/he can't compete with the evils in the world
s/he can't stand up to darkness there's no use trying

when all the world's black veil hinders all sight in the first place

so, come, my friend, wake in the dark of night to the light of day and enjoy what's beneath your breath

they can't take that away from you as much as they've tried,
they can't just breathe and turn toward your heart that your soul imbibes

you are freedom's name
you are future's remnant's that tear across the sky stripped of the night by stardust's glory ride

come, be yourself
come, emblazon your name on mine
come, rest in the rejoicing of ecstatic living

for today is now alive in you
for today is now love in you
for today is now forever more fulfilling than in any other choice


come, be you with me
and I'll see you, too
as I see me

streaming streaking blessed
buoyant above and below

I am
you
are love

I love you
