Poem: You Are A Champion



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,

wanting, waiting,

murky shadow,

harsh berating,

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.

Here.  Now.

I am complete, steady, whole.

A champion of love, undefeated.
