Invisible Forces


When all the elements
Soil, light and water
Present and play
The process begins..

Awakened from core to surface
The seed pushed forth
Against all pressure
Against all odds

You too
With all your history
Shackled to torment
Over and over

Plus present bite and spit
Venomous and stinging
From glare to words
Abusive, depriving

Push, push forth
As no-one sees
The invisible forces
Constantly pulling you down

Reach with all your might
Grab every trickle
Kindness, love, joy
And watch…

Smoldering flames may persist
Stand detached from the fanners
Mourn yesterday’s self
Live in today’s breath

And promise me this
You’ll reach, you’ll call
Me, the like,
All your little gifts

You will be your own angel
As you already have your wings
And this life you’ll walk alone

But you need never be lonesome!
