I would tear apart this constricting veil
That chokes my mind and cleats me to this soil:
I would try, and try again, and gladly fail,
And consider it worthy of my toil

If only I could see in me some change,
If only I could find that other ‘Me’,
If only I could venture past the strange
That is my normal, and set Me free.

There, if I could but find it is my Self,
There, in that deep darkness who I want to be:
There, silent, secret, is the hidden wealth
That is my spirit and my destiny.

Don’t be surprised if one day I break this shell –
I wish to see the heaven in my hell.

April 2002

Do you ever feel that there’s a different you, waiting to break free?
