Someday I will close my eyes and forget
Without having to consciously dis-remember
And it will not be called to mind any longer
The totality of pain
I will not know the way shame feels
Or the varying shades of tired
And the weight of guilt will no longer remain as fetters upon my feet
And will raise my arms
And take in a deep, long breath
And allow the clean air to circulate
The vessel of a free soul
