I am born

and reborn through eons

to quench my thirst

in your conviction.

Not abrupt moves,

not verbal ploys

only unadorned truth

rich feelings unhidden

flowing unbidden…

from an unclogged heart

expressed freely


I wield no power

over you,

circumstances are beyond me

so are you.

Yet, I shall return… in every life

searching with renewed hope

waiting in eternal patience

to reach the kernel through the husk.

I will be born

and reborn, through eons

till the day you hold my hand

look life in the eye and say (with conviction),

“We belong.”
