Lost

 
In finding your way, you will get lost.
With scenic routes and bridges to cross,
Some days it’ll shine, some days it’ll rain.
Some days you’ll feel joy, some days you’ll feel pain;
But once you realize you’re no longer bound,
it’s in the lost, you will be found

Salvador Dali’s The Meditative Rose

Words appear on a page
releasing a bird from a cage
to fly into whatever may come
a brave heart beating to its own drum

Words appear on a page
unclothed and alone on that stage
unrehearsed lines dismissing fear
unafraid of how it may appear

Words appear on a page
expressing love and a dying rage
exposing pain and accepting truth
a deep ache it’s trying to soothe.

Words appear on a page
purging the heart like burning sage
looking towards a brand new dawn
closing a chapter and moving on.
