ME

I
Was
A thirty-nine year-old
Zygote
And now
I'm a
Forty-something
Teenager.

I
Am
Stuck on
High school
In many ways
But only
Twelve years-old
In
Others.

I
Moved
Very recently
From the
Impossibly strange
Category
To the
Potentially
Salvageable.

I
Am
Grateful
For the
Agents of change
God has sent
Me.

I
Am
Grateful
For the
Coincidences
Synchronicities and
Serendipities
That show
Me
God
Is on my side
And I'm on the right
Track.

I
Am
Grateful
For the
Awarenesses
And the chance
To be where
I am
No matter how
Embarassing.

I
Am
Grateful
For weird
Good weird'
Which I now know
Means
Change is on the
Way.

I
Know
For me
Change
Starts with
Weirdness
Then things
Move too fast
Like scenery
I have to
Race by quickly
To catch
Up.

I
Want
Love
The love
That changes
Me
But without the
Complications.

I
Want
Love
To visit upon
Me
With little effort
Of my own
Just come to
Me
Say you love
Me
We'll get on with
It
And I'll have
Someone to
Love
And to express
My gratitude
To God
For giving me
Another
Chance.

I
Want
To skip
The pinball machine
Of my
Fears
Misunderstandings
Hesitations
False moves
Unexplained actions
Unexplainable
Reactions.

I
Want
To learn
The language
The language of
Love
But
I'm sure
I'd never
Speak
It.

I
Want
To atone
For all
The fumbled chances
The blown saves
The dropped balls
When I thought
I had already
Scored.

I
Want
Somebody else
To feel
This burning
In my
Heart.
