For your silence to break,
– for your soul to shake,

Weeping, then laughing.
The power of love came into me,

wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door.
It opens.
I’ve been knocking from the inside.

Poem #6
I’ve been looking for a long, long time,
for this thing called love,
I’ve ridden comets across the sky,
and I’ve looked below and above.
Then one day I looked inside myself,
and this is what I found,
a golden sun residing there,
beaming forth God’s light and sound.

So silent, because I am constantly talking with you.

and made me a poet who sings about joy.

Laughter always follow tears.
Blessed are those who understand.
Life blossoms wherever water flows.
Where tears are shed divine mercy is shown

Coming when others called me, I was lost.
Then I left everyone, myself as well.
Then I found everyone, myself as well.

A great silence overcomes me
and I wonder why I ever thought to use language.
