(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.
