Open the Window
Abre la ventana.
Feel the wind.
Smell the newly blooming buds of spring.
Know that changes are coming.
Feel them stir within you.
You fight it, the opening.
It is you. It comes from you,
but you think it comes at you.
You fear it and love it and lose yourself in it,
until at last you simply give in to it.
It fills you and consumes you,
until finally you become it.
Rejoicing in its overwhelming ecstasy,
you open yourself to this new realm.
Where power collides with vulnerability…
Where souls emerge and spirits find
their true potential.
I wrote this poem awhile ago... I'm guessing sometime in 2013, and it's been decorating my homepage ever since. It's time for it to come down, but I wanted to still be able to share it with you.
