I have become my shelter from this storm, my legs have become strong, I can stand on my own.
My horizons no longer hold smoke and ruins, broken things and deflated dreams and bricked up ego, in it’s place are green grass and open space in which to build and develop the little boy that never got off of his knees.
No more waiting for hand outs and allowance, gone is the surrender of power to the undeserving, the belittling of self in accordance to ankle deep social criterion was last night.
Gone is never knowing when to laugh or cry, grey skies now threaten inclement weather and not deep holes from in which to climb out.
Weakness is no longer a character flaw, but a select moment in time when strength is not needed.
I am more than collection of body parts acting as one, I am a son, a cousin, a nephew, a friend, a mate, a thinker. I am a visionary with hopes of leaving this place for the next, I am the wind.
Though battle worn I be war ready, my weapons are thought and passion, my defense is knowing I have looked at death and it no longer controls.
The love of life is something I have never known and still not fully realized, but I still continue to get up and carry on and in that, I have grown.
i look new at this, as i dust off my old consciousness.
i’ve been doing this for six evolutions.
the suit ain’t comfortable this time around.
the sleeves are kinda tight and the pants are to short, it’s really big around the heart area as well and this hair.
i’ve seen quasars and pulsars, i’ve even seen collapsed stars turn into black holes, but nothing like this uncomfortable suit I have now and this hair.
i’ve been at this for six evolutions, i’ve created machines that can only be described as magic, but this suit is unlike anything i know. it has an unfamiliar purpose.
i have the ability to think on three levels, seen, unseen and what’s to come.
i have studied with and worked for all the masters from all six evolutions and have even soul traveled with a few to and from this earth. i’ve seen planets that have no life and even planets that are all water, never have i come across a suit such as this or even considered it.
i do remember in the first evolution, their was talk of a great people who wore this suit, but it was only talk and some even mentioned that those were not suits. my mind has spanned this entire universe and others, how could they not be suits?
this hair has got to be the most uncomfortable for me, it’s kinetic and potential energy at once, is that possible?
i’ve watched luna being formed and i even saw her as she cooled, but nothing like this.
i have seen mountain ranges come and go, oceans rise and fall, but this suit has power beyond all the forces of nature. this has got be to what god felt like when he created the heavens.
when this suit is illuminated just right, it glows with a power that i don’t know and the color must be the color of god and his offspring. the earth be this color also. i have been to the center of this galaxy by thought and that is not this, this is new.
though uncomfortable to me, i feel i’ll never get full use of this suit and this hair. this incarnation has made all the rest pale.
i’ve now grown, i have reached the upper room and rest is close, on bent knees, rest is close.
we never knew, thought ourselves life, but we never knew, how many times must a soul come back to learn a lesson as simple as this? we never knew and my rest is close.
after reasoning with myself and knowledge of worlds gone, i’ve come to realize that it’s not the suit that’s uncomfortable, it’s me. my mind is not wise and wide as i thought, i still need to grow.
this suit is my beginning, after six evolutions i’m just beginning, my rest is not close, as I polish my new consciousness.
