There is a part of me,
the deepest part, the base, the source,
that splashes up with fountain force
beyond my petty rights and wrongs
From heart to head to high beyond
in flights of sparkling rainbow light
The real me that’s completely free
The One I was before my birth
The One I’ll be when done on earth
that sees behind the twists
of greed and shallow,
Past this flimsy, tired drama
to where I’m breathing deep within,
to where my very life arises
Quiet far beneath the din
Sheltered, safe, past disguises:
The tender, gentle, warming presence of no limits,
Boundless size, immeasurable, with no agenda
Always giving, always full
Growing greater as I grow still
Expressed as me, expressed as you,
Compassionate, tireless, and true
Impervious to heat and cold,
Unaffected by grief, never ill,
Unable to lie, deceive, or cheat
and never ever needs a pill.
Though some say I’ve peaked—that I’m over the hill—
I’m healthy, hearty, original.
I’m timeless, expanding, picking up steam
for I know what is beyond this dream
of time and tears and too many machines:
A crisp and startling sunlit day
where I rise in strength, never fade away
where the true embodiment of me
flies beyond this stifling room
to the place that is called Now
beyond the knowing and the schemes
Bursting out in glowing space
Whirling in a graceful dance
of spinning spirals,
dull foundations of this dream
shaken away with sudden ease.
Home at last.
I am complete, steady, whole.
A champion of love, undefeated.
