for giving

and so
i have spent all this time
building bridges
these bridges to self
these bridges to love
these bridges to meaning
but the bridges are burning fast
my footfall but one step ahead
of the torch that you bear
the one that forces me to cross over

and so
it is true what they say
that something must die
in order that i may live
something burnt at the altar of worship
sacrificed so that i may be free

oh blessed release
this letting go
of self-definition, both harmful and healing
of You definition (the same)
of them definition
of Life definition
of meaning and purpose
of rightness and wrong
of suffering and love
once clung to
unbound
surrendered at last
into the softening arms of unknown
