my eyes have shook
Like a caterpillar unwilling to unfold
For the light that shines
Is a paradise of unknowns,
Where I know not where do I fit in?
Where I know not my identity
Where I know not if ever I will be loved,
So I cripple like that baby on knees
in dark hours of gigantic silence
When harsh reality spread its tentacles
Trying every drop of blood to unmask me.
Entwined with my soul
I close my eyes,
And chant the holy rhyme
my mother once sung to me.
Oh there, He stands upright,
My angel, my Savior, My Almighty!
Holding my little fingers
Lifts me up from every fall
And whispers in voice of angel,
“Take the flight, you are in my sight.”
Shivering I take a leap and walk in His direction.
Sluggish, petrified but assured
open up my eyes to the world.
It is then the butterfly tickles me
and welcomes me to His world
where miracles get unfurled.
