this is a
this is a poem
this is a poem that is getting closer by the moment

 

this is a poem
that is not afraid of where it’s going
this is a poem
that is not afraid

 

this is a poem
that is taking me
to undisclosed destinations
under cover of night

 

this is a poem
that is demanding my allegiance,
smearing me with butter,
slipping me under,
casting me off

 

this is a poem
that is threatening me with the danger
of confronting my own weaknesses

 

this is still a poem

 

this is a poem
that knows
my greatest triumphs and disasters
are within

 

this poem
is a marathon
not a sprint

 

this poem
is a space
not a shape

 

this poem
is a glow
not a spark

 

this poem has a rhythm all its own
this poem is dancing alone
this poem is
dancing alone

 

this poem
will give me everything
each time I give a little more

 

this poem
will reward faith
thousandfold
and will still be
giving

 

this poem
is not a riddle

 

this poem
is an epic

 

this poem
is unfolding
like a day

 

this poem
has the power to transform
but will not divulge
its secrets
easily

 

this poem
fills stadiums

 

this poem
empties rooms

 

this poem
opens windows

 

this poem
is written
on a window

 

this poem
is written
on both sides
of a window

 

this poem
is written on
both sides
of an open window

 

this poem
looks different
from the inside

 

this poem
takes time
and replies
with little pieces
of forever

 

this poem
is hard to believe
this poem is whispering:
faith works
in mysterious ways

 

this poem
softens the triumph of 17,
soothes the jaded 37

 

 

this is a poem that is getting closer by the moment
this is a poem
this is a
this is
this
