I Rise, I Shine

Published April 2, 2017 by tindertender

Bang, Bang, Bang …
The ball drops.
I hear it hit the backboard
And drop again.

Sleeping dogs lie.
Surrounded by sound,
The stomach flip flops,
Unease fills the body.

“Breathe” I say,
Draw it in and fill the lungs.
“What are you doing?” he says.
I respond, “What are YOU doing?”

Breathe again,
Feel the breath move through the body.
Swallowing doubt,
I release the holds on the mind.

There is a shift,
Many feel it.
I am not alone,
Love prevails.

Manipulation, control,
They have no place here.
Here, freedom dwells,
Clawing at the walls I climb.

I climb from the darkness
Called “ownership” and I claim my right.
This life is mine,
I choose where time is spent.

Before time, He was there.
After time, He will still be there.
I wait, I learn,
I rise, I shine.
