When sleep won’t come
And your heart won’t rest
The world is alive inside of you.
Embrace the day, the night, the rain, the stars
Marry your souls to the elements
Leave your self exposed
Allow your mental flesh to be grated away
Until there is only the soft soul
And in this honest, untouched state
Look at what scares you
In the still, unbroken reflection
See your brave argument and your earnest indignation
Change it or grow it.
The time for the true self has come,
Trust and trial.
Work until you deserve it.
