If I believed

 

 

I found myself on fire

with the spark of an idea

watched as it consumed me

and then let me go free

 

I walked around the country

with an eye on the horizon

watching for the end game

looking if it would be the same

 

The people that I talked to

the many and the very few

were all about the notion

going through the motions

 

I can’t stand the idea that ideas can’t stand me

Where I am and just who I should be

I am going where I should never have imagined

dreamt about or had my thoughts fashioned

 

Finally

 

Waiting at the big gate

thinking of what I can say

when he lets me go inside

to the place I can’t hide

 

seeing all the things there

people who knew and cared

looking at me sadly

relieved and…smiling gladly

 

I can’t stand the fact that facts can’t stand me

Where I am and just who I should be

I am where, now, I should never have imagined

dreamt about then or had my thoughts fashioned

 

and I wonder now of that fire

the spark that took me higher

always just inside of me…

that finally set me free
