Life Until Now

                           Warp Drive ~ Philip Brent Harris

Life

Once, I lived a life
Such as he,
who sat and pondered
endlessly.
Turned each moment
upon its head,
abandoned quickly
when it proved dead.
Convinced each battle fought
end in winning, damn the cost.
Ever, only to regain myself,
who wondered, wandered, lost.

Until

Nourishing love illuminated spirit,
encouraged me to grow,
to breathe, to focus, flourish,
ride the flow.
Still rudderless and
current tossed,
the flow powerful, swift, direct,
never to be crossed.
Sometimes pulled under, to sink
below it,
to meet my darkness, hid within,
and know it.
Past struggle, the wail and flail
of living random life.
Humbled, seeking guidance
to overcome the strife

Now

On my journey to the now,
that’s here.
Struggled, muddled through,
despite my fear.
Consumed by panic,
fought for air.
Gasp and grasp the hopeful spark,
yet, do I dare?
Subsumed in darkest depths,
knowing surly I will fail,
to trust, surrender to the current
and rise into sunlight and inhale.
