I dreamt of glistening wings of courage
that would expand the length of my voice
That my voice would take flight and echo
within the deepest chambers of my heart
I thought I’d know my heart intimately enough
to trust it
to listen to its whispers through the
clatter of uncertainty
I thought of painting murals of yellow freedom, filled with
sunflowers and freesia
and purple love
all over the world
I thought of engraving music into majestic whirlwinds
laughing with adorning sparkling notes
waltzing to a saxophone or perhaps conga drums
I thought I would have a building named after me
a building made of chocolate and powdered gold that
shimmered and glowed
and protected from nightmares
I imagined to be fiercely myself
the realities surrounding me to
my dreams and hopes.
I thought I’d understand God,
Still hoping to become more than I am today
Learning to love who I am in this moment
