Rebirth

Parama w creek rocks

When I offered myself to you

you embraced me like a child

and comforted me

 

Cleanse me

I cried

and you cleansed me

 

I died in your arms

and you buried me

You breathed life into my soul

 

You let me be reborn

renewed in the spirit

whole, pure, alive in you

Change agent

holding up VW bus

My father

the genius

kicked me out of his house

 

“I don’t want her here”

he said to my mother

“She’s nothing but trouble”

 

I cried myself to sleep that night

 

Dad: You’re stubborn, like me

(You taught me this)

 

I am trouble for you

because you don’t want to change

 

I know: everywhere I go

something must change

 

To be a change agent

is a lonely assignment

 

I always know it’s time to go

whenever there is resistance

 

Everywhere I go

nothing can stay the same

 

I forgive you

(You taught me this)
