New Beginnings

Ive held on for so long

so tightly

against the cyclone that took over

calling your name

but each time I tried to keep a grasp

you let go a little bit more

till my hands are bleeding

and my throat is smarting from the calling

 

Ive held on for so long

hoping for a reprieve

a chance to make it all right

 

and then Ive realised

there is nothing I need seek penance for

my time is done

my cell is dismantling

and the hands that bleed

are healing

holding on to the purity

of love

sought

given

and received

when the time comes

I shall dance like never before

and know I have truly come home

to me

and all I own
