a manifesto

i say i say
live in the moment
cause tomorrow is not guaranteed
ive done some pretty reckless stuff
these last few months
this last year
i have no idea what the fuck i am doing
or how i got here
or when things became so muddled
but i know in my heart
that im tyring the best that i can
i will never forget you
my friend
you will always be in my heart
things just havent been the same
because of you
i can never look at the world the space
the fabric of reality
has ripped
in metamorphosis
and rearranging
i know that without darkness and pain
and despair
there is no light and no love and no hope
but ive been despairing now
for 316 days
and counting
with death brings life
and i cant deny
the catalyst
for change
ill never be the same
never be the same
i wouldnt want to be that girl again
ive evolved
into something else

are you restless like i am?
it feels like there is something inside
that is going to burst any moment
everything is going to break down
every day there is so much to be thankful for
but i am lost
i seek a guide
where are you?
ive glimpsed your light
so radiant
so shiny
so true
i love you
what is this life
but a series of mishaps and miracles
breathe into me
oh life giving spirit
i ache for your touch
i offer my heart
and my soul
and broken
and in desperate need of repair
chaos breeds creativity
and so i am thankful
for every day of wandering
for i am a wanderer

i cannot seek
but i will be found
and i see you everywhere
in every cloud
every book
every song on the radio
the all consuming light of the world
i cry when the sun sets
and rejoice when it returns
guide me
guide me

goodbye to the ego
hello to the alll
the everything
all that ever was
and ever will be
speak to me

speak to me

and so i cant stop
doing what i love
which is wondering
the art of contemplation
there is a storm building on the inside
i will breathe fire
scorch the past
destroy all this is
to make room
for what will be

i gotta save my soul.
