I believe

That I was born

For a reason

That I experienced a sometimes beautiful

And oft times traumatic childhood

For a reason

That I had an inspiring yet violent father

For a reason

That I had a quiet and loving doormat of a mother

For a reason

That I was hungry and homeless

For a reason

That I was unloved

For a reason

That  I was loved

For a reason

That I was brutalised

For a reason

That I was a wanderer

For a reason

That I found and lost friends

For a reason

That I loved and let down others

For a reason

That others loved and let me down

For a reason

That I journeyed inward and outward

For a reason

That the inward became the outward

And the outward became the inward

And both became one

For a reason

That all I have done

And said and felt is

For a reason

That I am

For a reason

Everything that I do or say

However small and seemingly insignificant is

For a reason

 

I believe

That the force that grows words from me

Is the same force

That opens seeds in earth

That the force that sings these words

Is the same force

That moves the wind through trees

That the force that makes me do and say

Is the same force

That gives a reason to birdsong and flight

That the force that burns me phoenix-like

Is the same force

That spins the seasons

That the force that connects me to the world

Is the same force

That webs all beings

That the force that has brought me to you my life

Is the same force

That draws the elements to one universal spin
