Dear Friend -

      I begged an audience with Inspiration,
but he was far too busy.
I called upon Creativity,
but she had others to meet.
So I am left with a heart and a brain,
completely of my own,
hoping sincerity and authenticity shall suffice
in place of brilliance and eloquence.

      There is so much that cannot be known.
There is plenty that cannot be seen,
like looking through a telescope,
we see a little --
enough to know there is a world of stars.
But outside the rims of the convex,
lies a universe that is ever expanding.

      Life is not one constellation,
but a sea of lights and galaxies,
and exploding suns  --
It is beyond our sense of space
and awareness of time.
And though you may be just one,
You are one connected to infinity.

     And God is there as the great conductor;
of details, of connections, of destiny,
Aligning the desires of our hearts
with his inevitable plans.

     What I mean to say, dear friend,
is that you can do anything --
We are on the same side of wonder and possibility.

As limited as our view may be,
Boundless are we.

It is common
-- like a penny,
thousands in a jar.
but stars,
are they not common, too?
Billions from afar.

I fall right in the middle;
between a penny and star -
I'll hold the copper in my hand,
and gaze the other with my heart.

I feel like I'm armed with box cutter --
Risking the jagged edges
that comes with tearing through,
all to release
something new,
something unexpected,
something understated.
Something I just didn't know.
I didn't know that it was just me,
in a cocoon.
I thought it was night,
So I slept in claustrophobic complacency.
I just didn't know.
I thought freedom was as far as I could touch
but the walls were too close
so I froze in place,
discontent in my little space.
Till one day, I hadn't enough room
for all the change I couldn't see.
And when there's no door for you to leave,
you create an exit --
and enter into a world
you still know nothing about,
but it's wonderful.

I think I'm at the end
but then
there just another part --
and it runs on
for long
and no one would know
how long I can go
right here in my head
dreams and wishes
never to end

Uncertainty is exciting
- and terrifying.
It is a shot adrenaline
and the lingering thought
that haunts a cozy pillow.

The want to confirm,
The need to understand
stabs my brain like a dull pen.

I'll use my ears to hear
but if the sound is static
could I lean into it?

And there it is,
like a ghost appearing,
but only in corners of my mind.

One bold look and I've lost it.

Tell me something true,
or rather --

Tell me something.
