How do you know a truthBut that it sings upward from a knowingNested deep inside your lonely chest?It is Something bounding skywardRushing towards the light.
Do you Greet it with deep blue vastness?Or with a tight fistwrapped around a spaceWhere some time pastYour song was stopped?
You cannot forget to rememberThis soulsong ascending steeply.It’s liquid and Rhythmic insistencebeating at the gate of your throat,thrumming at the doorway…Knocking
You may Do your best to halt it,You who are afraid of your own heights.The one who soars inside youComes time and again to the cliff’s edge of comfort.
Oh “I know how the caged bird sings”…
Dissolve the barrier brave oneUnleash this hidden eloquence!Your breakthrough cryRaises the bar for all beings.
Help us remember with your winged testamentthe One song we must never forget.The One theme with a thousand variationsBorn From the cusp of heaven and heart.
