A witness in a storm

POETRY

Emptying everything that I am
Nothing to do, nowhere to be
Being pulled in different directions, but it is no longer up to me
Travelling at the speed of light yet going nowhere

A witness a fighter and nothing at all
Cradled by the rhythm of my heartbeat
An anchor between the worlds

A sweet sorrow stroking my face
Angels of light whispering you are not alone
So powerful yet so weak

Surrendering yet somehow moving forward
Realizing that there is nothing to do

There is a war and a storm but I am not involved
I am safe, silent, simply waiting to birth something new
I do not need to know what, it is already here
The fragrance surrounds me yet I cannot see

So alive I cannot contain it
Overflowing and I empty myself once more
Surrendering into the unknown and being welcomed home
