still i see the beauty
all about me
still i see an endless bounty
waiting to be claimed
held onto my flattered faith devoutly
shattered every piece of me
that cracked within the frame

 

still i see the reason that enabled doubt to grow
still i feel the seasons pass
as fast as heartbeats slow
still i raise my mast
appraise the ocean like a crow
still i show devotion
to the parts of me outgrown
still i venture into
the unknown

 

still i see the morning dew that glistens on the sill
still i give the dawn its due
permission to reveal
light and air i need to breathe
wisdom of the honey bees
without them
i would cease to be
the world would be deceased to me

 

still i see the piquancy of distant lights aglow
still i dream dreams sweepingly
in crystalline nouveau
still i am the keeper
of a host of souls in overflow
still i feel the steeping tide
in every single chromosome

 

still
i feel like home
even when i’m all alone
that feeling grows
still i feel the seasons pass
as fast as heartbeats slow
still i raise the cleanest mast
the heart in me bestows
still i thank the evening stars
for weaving path to lead me home
still
i live this life of mine
profoundly
still i see the beauty
all about me
