Containing Self

Soothing nerves of sharpened steel, calming this heart
with a fine tuned melody and rhythm.

Containing self, moving into a fantasy of imagination
where a mind can soar, taking this entire being into
forests, deserts, the atmosphere, just to begin again
on another plain somewhere outside the world.

Finding an energy, taking it within so life can be
moved beyond what it is now, living on edges, wanting
to do dangerous things just to feel alive, feel the
beating of my heart go faster.

Always taking beauty of everything into consideration,
holding it in photographic memories throughout life,
leaving nothing behind and never fearing anything,
knowing what is in store after it is done.
