MINES OF GOLD AND DIAMONDS

If I could just rely on myself
fully awaken inside my skin
I could grow a garden made of bees,
of dragons that have become trees.
If I could transform
each failure into a flowing spark
I could light all the darkness
that stays within me.
If I could heal
all that is broken and forgotten
I would not mind of things
that don’t matter.
With a clear vision
I would appreciate
the shadows of objects
the delays of intentions.
I would be free
as I would abandon the old ways
I would dig new parts of me
mines of gold and diamonds.
