(A poem by Marvella Garcia from AWE)
I want to dive in deep and swim to the endless bottom
To not think of the light I need to see since it’ll be there. To not think of the breath I need to breathe since I’ll be breathless.
I want to float standing still in a sea I can fully see.
To no longer be colorblind but to see new colors never created until now.
To hear the silence stream by like a firework.
To forge fragments of memory into amazing and unseen forms.
To listen to the lyrics on the skin and to find their meanings in the scars.
To drift like a bird unburdened in places it’s never been.
To oceans deep inside of me, where regrets swim away so freely.
To places where we stay awake. Awaiting nothing. Finally all right.
