I will embrace my dark side
Look directly into its eyes
Inhale its earthy fragrance
Flare my nostrils wide with fire
And dance on rooftops
Singing out my anger and sorrow
Into strong winds and soft breezes
Watch as my tears pour out to
Become healing rains
Gather my fears into a circle
And all hold hands
And breathe together in a rhythmic way
Until some grow roots and leaves and flowers
Some compost into eager soil.
With a spirited grace that looks down
From above and nods, just nods.
And breathes, and the breath
And is invisible,
And is indistinguishable,
From the Great Spirit, and
From the song of my soul.
