Showing Me the Light

From a disconnected pod I watch
See life happening before me
But I hide in my secret place
Disengaged from the chaos
Macabre repetition of effects
My chest inflamed by any news
Myocarditis of human misbehaviour
My head barely staying attached
By the shaking of disbelief
Until you appear on the periphery
Dampen the rage
And turn the next page
Show me the bloom of hope
The garden that we can sow
And you eclipse all that I knew before
Constantly reminding me
Of the beauty and the brilliance
The possibilities
That light the view
Pull me from my hiding space
Engage me in my life
