You are afraid
that love will break you
you’ve got to learn
how to let go
of chains and armours
gates and bridges
until you see
you are all soul
and you and me,
we’re made to love
till we break free
and become like
those beautiful birds
we envy so much
for their freedom
their conquest of the skies
and their sublime songs-
but don’t you know, love
that the human soul
is a phoenix
and human life
is the fire
we dance through
and we are
in our hearts
freer than any creature
for when we are wild
we are the eye
through which the universe
makes love
with itself
till finally
it breaks open
and in the midst of the dance
we see
we are one
with all
and that
is our rebirth.
