This

 

This                                                                 

Transcends almost everything                         

The energy

Newness

And of course

Beauty

Uncorrupted

Undamaged

By our world

Yet

This is the hope of the world

But first, this must survive

Uncorrupted

Undamaged

And history as my witness

Survival

Across all spectrums

Is not easy

I watch from my own sphere

Fighting the same battle

A little further along

Bearing scars of the conflict

Feeling tentacles around my ankle

Now and again

But uncorrupted

Undamaged

I have taken to floating

Attaching to nothing

Yet

Embracing everything

A witness

Who will witness

Great things

I am certain

From This

Standing with resolve

In silence

With set jaw

Steady eyes

And of course

Breath-taking beauty

Scrawling the message

Across the morning sky

 

“I will not

Cannot

Compromise

My truth

My life

Or our world

 

Love,

This”
