we see beyond

i look out and see beyond the horizon

i lift my head up to

face myself

face the world

facing with clarity

uncompromised  

honest about where i’m at 

i see now

i see me

i am not the villian i thought i was

and neither is the person before me

neither is the landscape before me

i am not the enemy

i look out and see faith

in this rests the belief in myself

my community

that anything is possible

that oneness

against the silence

knowing how to channel anger

removing desire before it turns to hate

standing against fear

looking it in the eye

my breath is so natural

you can see the sun come up

you can feel when the ground lifts and curves upwards to the sky

you can see past the horizon

all of us

standing

waiting

patiently waiting together
