I Need

Give me a time.

Tell me when.

Appoint an hour at which I  will know the truth.

The point in my exhale where my heart’s course will become clear to me.

I have no idea how to live in this chaos anymore.

I’ve waited and waited for the illumination to arrive and it hasn’t.

Maybe I missed it.

Maybe I was caught up in the story.

Lost in my ego, my plans and my desires.

Maybe the truth came knocking on my door and I didn’t answer.

I can’t tell what’s real and what’s not.

I breathed over and over again.

I hung my head and sobbed my heart out and still found no relief.

So help me, whisper me a new story. Build me a new home. Find me a new path.

Sing me a new song tonight, one that’s full of an earthy harmony and a celestial melody.

I need to know that I’m not alone. I need to know that I will find my way. I need to know that someone cares. I need to know that I will be missed…
