I am Born, I am Awake
I awake to where I was before
to walk familiar roads again,
having lived the air I am to breathe
new born, but world the same.
Opening eyes to fluorescent Judaii
and the friends I’ve loved in time,
I’m seeing clearly the rise of words
in an ascent I call a climb.
I eat in places with foods for thought
I know every path that’s lined with fools,
I swim in seas of delicate rich emotions
not poisonous drowning pools.
Closing eyes from a place I was before
to tread these steps again,
I’d be wiser than all those loved and learned
whom betray to laugh the same.
Whispering crowds within loyalty’s airs
only befriend widened smiles adorned
belittling the scowls, mind eyes deliver
from the assassinate shadows scorned.
I eat in restaurants with foods of thought
knowing all courses and menu’s fake,
I swim eternal seas of rich emotions…
….I am born, I’m now awake.
