There is such a place, you know–
one that transcends time and space
and visions of what you’re supposed to resemble,
and the limits placed by the digits
of your mortal age.
I can feel the presence of it
in my bones,
where the sky is never ending and liberated
and the sun and moon
can openly converse and love and exist,
without the rules of superiors
who like tragic love stories and twisted histories.
Whatever you decide to do, whatever you decide to feel,
there are no restraints
to keep you from the prospects of flying,
or embracing things that you had to
let go of in another existence.
There is no fear, confusion, or awkwardness,
no doubts of not belonging,
of not deserving to exist in such a place
where your soul can be pure,
and being able to thrive
without having to try so hard
You don’t have to try anymore to
be a good person,
because you are one.
You don’t have to struggle to hold on to yourself,
you don’t have to feign ignorance
You can breathe and smile openly,
and every smile is so breathtakingly beautiful that
you glow and transcend above all heavens
The ground is soft and supportive,
giving way to your feet, that no longer
feel so tired and heavy from having to labor to live,
or from constantly running away
from demons and voices
that tear at your conscience and soul.
No, you can now feel as light as air itself,
soft feet running on sunkissed clouds that
formed from tears of happiness.
When it rains,
you don’t have to take cover
for it has already washed away all your sorrows and guilts,
guilts in the forms of hot, suppressed tears
in the failures of your lost ambitions
and stolen discoveries,
guilt from turning away, even when someone
asked you for help.
You can forever venture out here,
to unknown, misty, thriving islands and majestic palaces
you can do things you never got to do,
for you don’t have to pretend
to be someone you aren’t.
You don’t have to live each day questioning
every single telltale of life.
You don’t have to wonder anymore
about why the world can be
such a cruel place,
no matter how many rays of hope
reach into the darkness.
You don’t have to wonder anymore,
such misery does not exist,
and the ruins of a good soul
dance as a renewed, enlightened being again.
you don’t have to live someone else’s life
because here, you find yourself
over and over
and over again.
