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 home…
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…
