For I Am

Sometimes I look

and see

into the eyes of my mind

the void I try to fill,

the void that cannot be filled

unless

unless I accept the truth

the hope

the love.

Sometimes I trek

through the trails of my heart

trampling upon the soil

freshly laid—

faltering by the hand of my neglect.

And then

I look into my eyes again

and see the violent flames

of loss and regret

dance before my soul—

a ballet of death.

Darkness reins at the touch

and softens with rain

pouring.

And then,

and then I see,

and love and feel.

Finally overcome

by the willingness

to live beyond the walls of my mind.

Then

when I doubt myself

and those flames dance higher

farther and deeper into my essence

I can see the footprints of my wake.

I can become the soldier.

For I am

I am faithful.
