I realized my existence – Lucia Sullivan

******

“I realized my existence.
Felt my skin and breath from my body.
Watched tiny feet walk down a dusty road.
Just too small to run.
A being ,
Too small to awaken the sleeping.
So,
I kept walking.
Sometimes,
Most times,
Just following my little shoes.
Left alone with the noises of nature.
Five miles deep in a woods that I knew as mother.
I kept time with the more powerful and wise ones.
The tall trees that spoke to me with cedar smells and whistling branches that danced in the wind like a wild bird,
Trying to break free from a too small cage.
I made friends with the summer lightening,
That brought hard rains,
Beating on an old tin roof,
That drown out the voices who just made no sense.
It took an act of god to quiet them.
The storms became my friends.
Just as in life.
A god sent storm to quiet the senseless garble.
And I had found a way to appreciate and love them all.
For in them was a deeper meaning.
As deep as the forest that coddled me.
In arms too great and powerful to be cut away.
Not from my soul.
Not from my memory.
Oh,
Dear Mother Nature,
You loved me.
You taught me how to withstand the winds of change.
You taught me to be wild and free.
You taught me to look up and away.
And you taught me,
That the sun always shines again.
Even after the needed storms of life.”
