Over the Plateau

I feel kind of numb, as if I reached a plateau
And I stand for the sake of my future
I watch with passion as my tension rolls away
And I begin to love and nurture.

Surely I know that my life is a mess
Without letting myself breathe in the light
Its immense and its tiny all at the once
For I think I will Ė hey, I just might.

Walking on through the words and the terrible face
Letting silence become my damp heat
And as I work the wave to come back for my own
It refreshes me to the skin on my feet.

I did reach a place where the daisies are growing
And the movement around me subsides
I walk around my old self till I canít get dizzy
And the fire canít crack my insides.

What a beautiful moment for you and me to be
With our day and our flowers and sun
And I wanted to skip over the plateau
When walking through it was so much more fun.
