I asked the sky to swallow me inside But he refused to do so So I asked the river to help me flow along She said I weighed too much And i better walk away lest I'd drown Then l I asked the wind to carry me with her She paused fr a while And gave me a gruesome look "How can I carry you if you already carry so much guilt on your chest?" Disheartened and grieved , I requested the earth to bury me inside her She too denied , for I would hv to turn to dust to be one with her and that she can't take me alive. Then I pleaded the fire to burn me to ashes For I have none to grant me salvation Those flames of purity tried to grab me But they couldnt. Disappointed and exhausted I asked them all together To help me liberate through my misery They wondered why would I ask so For I was young And brave But Then asked me to wait, Conspiring against my wishes Soon after The sky gave me a pair of wings to fly To wander alone up and high ,to find my destiny The water showered me with her power The beauty Of lightness and consistency To be persistent and ever flowing in this journey of mine The wind asked me to flow along but With no strings attached Worthy of my every deed, And Soar High Always as light as a feather The earth then nurtured me with her buds of faith and fruits of patience and temperance The fire advised me Not to chase her but the darkness in me To tame my own demons and play with my own fire, Fiercely and delicately For it's the only thing that will keep me alive and set me free.
I believe in the magic of our Universal language as Spirit speaks intuitively, guiding each lesson. Being the artist of my life and seeing the dream. Anything and everything is possible I believe. Do you?
I wrote this as a poem of revolution, perhaps something off a fight for what we believe in. It could be something that means something to society, to a community, to a nation or maybe even to something very personal. The key thing I took away from this was that I had to fight for what I believed in, willing to put everything on the line for what I believed was right.
