Poem: In The Night

A shimmer, glimmer
A burning light
I awaken bolt upright

No one hears my ragged scream
As I surrender to what has been

I lie awake wondering at the force that first awoke me

The glimmer, shimmer of a hopeful place
Of new beginnings and possibilities that might take place

Of love, desire
The truth required to love
Existence not steeped in fear
To lead a life free from historical pain and suffering

To live the full expression of this gifted life
