    I was trapped/hidden/obscured
    behind shadows of help/hope
    less ness lying to myself
    that these shadows did not exist
    and walked in a body/with a face
    that had no reflection
    I tried to plant love
    for self/others in a place
    that had no sunshine
    and it died/but I tried
    to resurrect it/and/
    reincarnate it as a smile/
    as a laugh/that had no
    validity no SOUND...........to me
    I listened to a CHAOS that no one
    could hear........but me/
    a chaos that choked the harmony
    of birds singing/and staled the morning
    fresh air before the day begun/
    and provided me with hellucinations
    of an empty corner behind me.....

    then the corner began to talk
    to me of spring rains, love,
    hope, a rising sun, and freah air to
    breathe......and I

    began to see my reflection for the
    first time in awhile rising/soaring/flying/
    dancing/singing above all
    the chaos....that occupied my mind

    and I rinsed myself with tears
    and thanked the Lord for
    those voices in the corner behind me
    I hope they hear me when I say
    "thank you"

    you have helped to deliver me
    /reborn/ me into a new
    state of happiness that
    kissed me this morning.

    YOU <<< (E V O L ) V E <<<

    ... when I cry ~ pain's 'joy'
    healed my weary and tired soul ...

    I'm happy you have rediscovered
    happiness that lay dormant
    deep within self ~ waiting
    for permission
    to be
    allowed to come out -- welcoming YOU.

    The chiseled spirit within' me
    does hear you.


    One.
