Circle of Life

the heights I grew

on my younger thoughts

 

the strengths I built

into my older feelings

 

the room I gave

for my pregnant silence


the polish I did

upon my dusty eyes


the tonic I fed

to my ailing wisdom


the nights I let go

the days I waited

till I became tall


a bud to a flower


and felt the sky

on my new hands


and held the ground

by my new eyes


they were the same

as they were

before the nights I let go


they were the same

as they were

before the days I waited
