when you close your eyes 

see a light that penetrates you 

or is it you 

Who goes to the light? 

when I say “Jesus” 

a God comes to mind 

or a prophet 

on a cross? 

when I tell you “love” 

the taste is pain 

or flavor 

of freedom? 

when I pray in silence 

my mother hears my crying 

that washes mine 


I just want to give age 

to infinity now 

sorrows are the waters 

of the abyssal 

and live in a word 

recorded in the deed 

and lay me down 

about the naked truth 

I'm human and I'm going to make mistakes 

but I want to get it right 

I long to transcend 

like any and all beings 

I didn't come here 

to repeat patterns 

until dead

Submitter Statement

Hope you enjoy this film, Truth.
