Where does life go with turns and bends?
Twisted road we follow searching
unknown shores until everything ends,
among ruins we rise again and again
becoming anew in between lives.
The beginning of an end nowhere on sight
immortality with every sunrise
when death a curiosity only at night
bringing fears we didn’t understand
while life went on as we planned.
First love, the one to remember
with a kiss stolen between heartbeats,
disillusions found in tears, defeats
learned to let go of what was mine
when bounded I was to surrender
my life to the passing of time.
New horizons tempting my hidden fears
unable to understand the sound
of new sights, strange world found
in the cruelty of my skin, blind no more
to the innocence of life I found tears
stained dreams, not a child anymore.
And I found my seeds planted deep
bearing fruit in gardens left unattended,
vines crawling everywhere, pretended
intentions kept out of the warm in my heart-
We grew cold, kisses became cheap
and I let life pass for another start.
Freedom will find its way on distant shores
driven by new dreams of mortality,
accepting the lacking found in my reality
I will walk into my sunset and transcend
my bones and skin to open doors
engraved with the words,
