The Process

Standard

Encountering a renowned writer’s

Or professional artist’s description

Of still struggling with the haunting past

And the daily monotony,

I drown in a wave that condenses

Decades worth of suffering.

 

Hardly having begun this journey,

I have learned

That in order to defy the torments,

To live the creative life,

And to become true to oneself

Is not a finite rebellion

Nor an act of sheer force.

 

Instead, I continue to realize

New ways of seeing the chains,

To love the cycle

Of expression and transformation,

To add some bracelets to my weary arm,

And keep dancing into the night.
