In light of events that sometimes afflict us, there lies incredible resilience in each one us. A gift that causes us to uncoil from timid boundaries we are trapped in, to stretch into the stronghold that we are, astute and ever proud of ourselves and how far we have arrived. To respect this place we have come to, this renewed self which can only be rooted in that space deeper in the heart of us, that of the spirit within.

the composition exposed
and here I lie unmade,
naked as you were in
the time of Eve
when pockets none but
hide our true essence;
and here in my flesh,
a spirit ensconced
whose purity determines
the path, the innovative
ideas to lead myself
out from this strange
mud that clings to me
and into the purity
of rain
