The Thought is Just Enough

The Thought is Just Enough

I want to take off
And inhabit the deeper woods
And stay there
Until I can find
And then go back
To where I come from
A new person enveloped by a new light
And possessing a heart
That is as vast as the sea.
And then I can look straight
At other peoples’ eyes
As if they are children
And make them feel comfortable
Because I can see them
With the eyes of a child,
Pure, honest, unbiased, raw
And then they can look back at me
And say, “Your eyes are glistening!
We trust you. Go on, tell us
What we need to know.”
And I will just smile back at them.
The thought is just enough.

    Metamorphosis, reincarnation, apotheosis, all in one brief journey! But I think you’re already there.
