SERENITY

I’M REALLY NOT SURE HOW SHE WAS ABLE TO FIND ME,
LET ALONE HOW QUICKLY SHE GOT INSIDE ME,
I REALLY WASN’T IN THE BEST STATE OF MIND,
STILL SHE TOOK THE TIME,
THE TIME,
TO BE KIND,
THERE WAS A MOMENT OF VERY COMFORTABLE QUIETNESS,
THE RIOT IN MY HEAD HAD CALMED,
SHE HELD MY HEART,
AND OFFERED ME GUIDANCE,

WE BOTH TOOK A KNOWING DRAG FROM A CIGARETTE,
IT WAS MIND BOGGLING THE WAY ME AND THIS STRANGE LADY WERE ABLE TO CONNECT,
ON A LEVEL SELDOM SEEN, IF EVER,
I FELT BETTER,
AND INCREASINGLY SO,
BECAUSE SHE WAS “IN THE KNOW”,
AND THERE SHE STOOD,
NEXT TO ME,
PERPLEXING ME…

SHE SAW THE BEST IN ME…
AND SPOKE OF INTEGRITY AND PRIDE,
I NEARLY CRIED,
FOR REASONS THAT ARE LAYERS DEEP,
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT WE WOULD MEET,
ON A DAY LIKE SUCH,
SHE BROUGHT ME BACK IN TOUCH,
WITH THE REALITY OF CHANCE,
THE ABILITY TO REVERSE CIRCUMSTANCE,
AND DANCE,
YES! DANCE,
TO THE MUSIC
SHE STATED “YOU HAVE A BRAIN YOUNG MAN….I SUGGEST THAT YOU USE IT”
I TURNED AND PEERED INTO EYES THAT WERE POOLS OF COMPREHENSION, UNDERSTANDING AND EMPATHY,
AND TO PROTECT HER IDENTITY,
I’LL CALL HER SERENITY…
