Eternal Flame

read-a-long, or not

And when the world is ending, search for the beginning.

Search for freedom and happiness; choice, openness,

release, obsession. And search for nothing at all. Soar. With arms

that stretch to opposite ends of the earth and winds that cuddle

your worries and grant fecundity. Do not beg for forgiveness. Accept Gaia

for all she is worth, welcome her with open arms. Breathe her

scent. Bathe in her moisture. Walk all over her. Adopt the fallen

leaves, forever embrace the fire within. Ask her and she will tell

you, and the leaves, trees, rain, sky, breeze: “Search for vulnerability.”

It takes courage to endure the sharp pain of self-discovery

To roam the path of who you are, to find the tower of your captivity.

Let down your hair, Rapunzel—for you can be free.

Unmask your knight. Remove your armor. The Savior is here,

Extending a sturdy-hand; offering the kiss of death.

Leap.

Believe.

You must die before you soar. And fall before you rise.

Cut off your hair, Rapunzel—for you can grow.

Dance to the beat of your heart. Sing to the song of your spirit.

And you will realize

the light, strength, power, love, allegiance is within.
