to life
let it pull you under
give yourself up to the thrumming heartbeat of the cosmos
all that is living and dead and lost and beautiful
feel it until you have nothing left to feel
roar into the abyss and let the vibrations of your anguish twist in the wind
run into the street and stand with the dreamers, the rebels, the creators, the outsiders
be their guiding light
let them treasure you
charge into the darkness and destroy it with hope
claim your power
dance because you are alive and hurtling through the universe
with a fighting spirit and
radiant soul
reject the pain and oppression and fury and loss
takes your hands off the guard rail
let yourself tumble
toward the stars
toward the light
toward the possibilities
not falling
but flying
