Project – Equilibrium

A Wish

To see you comfortably
At ease
I am Proud, and at peace;
Like the earth senses a Star
I feel your light
Soak up your wisdom
And bathe in your shine.
With big bright eyes
I realise you…
From afar

It Begins

They told me never to write about a man
Or let my words be all I own;
Perhaps a woman shouldn’t hold the type of power
That toys with the elusiveness
Of holding,
Yet setting free
With words

Like Water

Like water you slip through my fingers
With rapid pace
And carefree flow of the universe
Forming droplets
From clouds
That gather in waves on the pacific
Breathing life into every being.
Like water I sip you slow
Knowing that as I do
I am adding to the cycle of your life
As you ensure mine,
Now I know why you have to go.

To Tell A Son

So then we start to appreciate life,
so much so because we gave you yours.
We live in the possibility that the world can be anything, to tell him

The world may get bigger but you will learn to see everything,
and the land you are from will start to seem small,
but you will learn that you need it and you will want peace for it all.

You can be a conqueror besides that of men,
teaching you this early you may have every
means of freedom.

To Tell A Daughter

So then we start to listen,
And we learn to open ourselves up,
Into the possibility that the world is more than just our own,
We must tell her

In her heart she is more than the land she comes from
But in her heart she must hold that land dearly
Because from it she blossomed
We must tell her

How her beauty grows despite corruption,
Her grace holds despite suffering
She is nothing short of perfect,
Despite the things she may have seen.
