On Becoming Me

Comments Off on On Becoming Me


Help me to measure the depth of the ripple
Extending from shore out to sea
Help me to measure the strength of the pebble
Returning those waves back to me
Help me look in the face of what seems not to be
And see what is clear to the soul
Help me grasp in the dark while not feeling at all
Help me sustain and nurture my whole
Help me smother the seeds and still think of the flowers
Soon to come out of the depths all aglow
Help me fill up with joy and shout aloud to the world
Help me unearth what I’ve buried below
Help me weather the storm and feel with the rainbow
Diffusing that clear sliver of light
Help me descend to the depths and return safe and sound
Help me complete what my heart knows is right
Help me to balance when my wheels start to roll
To run while not going to far
Help me to fly with my wings that are bent
To reach up and connect with the star
Help me to look at myself in the eye
To feel how to swim in the sea
Help me to laugh when the time comes for joy
But please help me just to be me
