Are you funny?
Are you prayerful?
Are you genuine?
Can you find yourself?
Do you recognize yourself?
Can you bear to come face to face with you?
Can you recognise your fears?
Can you stand the quiet?

Your burdens,anger,frustrations, fetishes?
The bits that build you

After all has been said and done….
Is there an aridness, barrenness,dryness?
Are there hidden springs of hope and faith?
Are there unexpected wells of inspiration,of glee,of mirth?

Unwilling to let go?
Do you feel invisible or invincible?
Set apart or part of a whole?
