Everything's True, pt. 1

by Jessica in The Rainbow

Every joy sits on a spectrum Every pain connects at the bottom In the middle’s the point. Sitting in the middle Looking at each joy and pain Sitting in the middle Not floating far away Not looking to feel safe Not hiding in the center but Experiencing pain born out of the joy you long for It’s true, this joy we long for and Desire is in our being and Joy can’t exist alone Accepting the full dimension Accepting the truth of being Not holding onto suffering Not holding onto bliss Picturing life Picturing life like grains of sand Through our hands Through our toes Up our nose Floating floating We can choose We can pick it up again if we can stand it If we don’t mind losing it again. Feeling this pulse in me Feeling this energy I am alive and free from the lies that were taught to me. There is no destination There is no safe escape Right in this moment I feel safe, and then unsafe In my mind I am safe, and then unsafe In my mind where I harbor lies that I tell myself to feel okay and you feel things deeply, I feel the same way We feel ourselves growing deeper, deeper, deeper in the light. And I will not judge the light that flows through me I will not judge the words that come from my mouth I will not judge each chord I witness in my mind the second before it comes out And I will not judge myself at all. I will not judge myself at all. I will not take this experience and make it cheap for you. I will not hide myself – my heart doesn’t want me to. The world is full of people who may need to hear what’s on my mind Just like I’m inspired by people who are not afraid to share their minds. The world is full of broken people The world is full of people who are trying to find their dream come true We think we’re owed a dream come true. But the only dream The only dream we’ll find Is the one that says that time is on our side. Every moment that we breathe or speak We choose to be We choose to breathe And I choose this life And I choose to breathe And I choose to be here with the war that’s inside of me. Fighting the past that hurt me Fighting the lies that shaped me Knowing my breath can help Knowing my voice has meaning for others who want to be for others who want to be here for people who need to be here for people who can’t help but feel fear like me like you like me.
You want there to be a goal you child of wisdom You want there to a path to a place in the sky You’re hoping there’s a way to avoid all danger Like a light on for houseboats passing by You saw her as a place you could turn and run to You saw him as a god not as a man You saw them with their wisdom and their want to save you You saw them on high when they were just holding your hand ~ But what do I know about quests and castles What do I know about snakes in the closet What do I know about spells and wishes What do I know about people who’ll hurt you What do I know about paths unfolding What do I know about anything good? What do I know about your winding journey? About could and would and should? ~ But if the moments before are tunnels of truth Are the moments before like God in his youth? With no need to explore – they led me to here Why waste another year in tracing footsteps? There’s plenty of doors and plenty of truths and There’s plenty of places to learn from youth There’s plenty of water and there’s plenty of air and There are plenty of ways to get from here to there And ‘there’ is a word you don’t miss at all Being here in your castle with its beautiful walls And ‘there’ is a place you don’t need to go Put your castle on crutches, watch it hobbling slowly ~ With every new step there’s a weight that’s lonely It’s heavy like ice in the core of your being But you’ve held on too long to the people so willing to be like your armor when you have your own shield and you don’t need their shields and you don’t need their gods ‘cause they won’t be there at the end of the journey. We all go home to our own vacant books We all go home to ourselves in the mirror And eyes are like stars point to what’s true So I am wanting to spend time with you ~ And everything’s fine and everything’s fine and I’m gonna love you without letting you save me And everything’s fine and everything’s good and I’m gonna love you without losing my journey And everything’s fine and everything’s true and time pulls my purpose right out of my being and codes are exposed and DNA’s real and we can’t deny the ways that we feel when we feel like a compass that’s set on the truth And fear is a part but it’s snakes in the corner ~ If you only knew what’s inside of you The things I imagine would hurt your memory If you only knew what you already grew If you knew where you’re going, could you see it too? I see it like ice on a frozen pond It’s rippling still & reflecting the sunlight the light is its purpose, it knows it has won As it starts melting, all the puddles are rising And it sees with clarity the clearest of suns and it sees without fear that the dawn is coming it knows it can help – it knows it’s the one but it makes no excuses for the ways it was frozen ~ So I don’t want to own you I want to be friends I want to travel alongside your body I understand where you begin and I end But that doesn’t mean I won’t love your company ~ So here I am, morning With this hand in tow Deep in my heart, staring out the window Trees without leaves and branches exposed More beautiful than we can imagine.
