Returning to myself

One day I will face my other half
The age-old partition turn back into one
I will tell it from the crumpled clothes
From the wrinkled face
and the cold breath
I will feel it in the uncertain steps
and the eyes empty of joys
I’ll wait for it, to tell it the way to come homeā€¦
Prayers will empty my mind
of its false fears
and God will let me walk at peace
in his path
I will wait impatient for the morning
I will lose myself in the burst of the new day
A gentle beat will be born in my heart
I will buy expensive balsam
To soothe the wild hairs of my anger
That over years have knotted in the nests of conflict with my other half
And at last I will walk free
The road that turns
me back to myself…
