Awaken, Evolve, Change



Arise, awake from dreamer’s slumber

What ails you as you lie too long beneath the stars

A ready world awaiting your contribution

Keening its lament at your absence

Even now hopeful you will come

Never yet believing you would resist


Ere long, diminished days and nights will call

Voices drawing home to sleep forever yonder

Overcome suspended animation and

Live as only beating hearts know how

Vying for the marrow in your core

Ever evolving


Changing, yes, before widened eyes

Healing what was once the fatal wound of conflict

Altering the course and meaning of time’s

Nuanced reckonings through fleeting passage

Graduating by mercurial turns to its crescendo

Ever beautiful in vitality as still it calls, come
