To Be


To be really known in the midst of the darkness

and the deep desires that cling to me

when I just want them to let me go


To be fully seen in the chaos

of my spinning mind and out of body madness

that invariably takes me for a ride


To be unquestionably loved from the inside out

despite my wandering and meandering

and incessant falling down


To be undeniably free from the kiss

of shame that tastes good at first

but then always leaves me with echoing regret


How I love to look back

and remember where I used to be

before my spirit, soul, and body found truth


In the only One who’s constantly

known me and seen me

loved me and freed me


The only One who has always been and always will be
