Awake

My incandescent self

Knew god

Knew nothing of god

Believed in my own worth

Wept salt tears of shame

Struggled

Grew

Blew out the pilot light

A thousand times

(Trick candle

That never goes out)

And here I am come

To the summit of my life

Descending from here

To the heights of my own soul

God herself wept

At my awakening
