Allow My True Self Rise

Allow My True Self Rise
Allow My True Self Rise

The well inside me is drying,
the sun scorched plains of my desert
barren and seemingly void of potential,
yet I find solace in space,
an emptiness to fill,
so life can once again thrive.

Burned from darker intent,
stilled from empathy,
I have let those nefarious souls awaken
in my soul’s vessel,
the response of darker acceptance,
rather that breach calamity with heart.

How I vacillate,
from awareness to propensity,
and find in me the darkness I oppose,
and in the struggle for perpetuity,
I sometimes lose the balance of indemnity,
and fall short of potential, shriveled in light.

I am an enigma of purpose,
striving on one level, then to hell in a basket,
as I navigate my barren lands,
trying to seed a future with light and a balanced rain,
and to explain to myself
the wisdom of intention and the folly of inclination.

I pray for rain, the life-giver,
and in my vast void of harshest light,
a need for shadows to lessen plight,
while I grow my days to come,
not by fire but inner light,
honed from my compassionate heart.

I am sun, rain, calm and tempest,
the seed of potential ever at my fingertips,
and so I embrace all to comply,
to in balance find myself, saved from my inner ache,
and in freedom allow my true self rise.
