My Poem “Deus Poetica”

I feel like I have just awoken
from a ten year long dream...
I feel like I have just spent a decade
being inspired, inspiring,
and embodying the spirit
of the God of Poetry...
I feel like all the drama
that came before has been washed away...
I feel like I have stepped through a door
and out into the world of a brand new day -
but one that does not resemble
all that have come before in any way...
I feel like I have emerged and arisen
from a shell wherein which I grew
and I matured into who and what I am now...
I feel like I can now be something
and someone I could not have been in the past...
I feel like I am now unchained...
I feel like from now on
I will not be mind-tricked by those
who see me as a means to an end...
I feel like the pieces of life's puzzle
are once again moving to create a new picture...
I feel like I am traveling towards
something that will redefine my life
and build the reality of my future...
I feel like I can take a step back at the same time that I take a step forwards
and at any given moment plant new roots
and at the same that I grow new leaves,
apples, and flowers upon the branches
of my ever-changing muse tree...
I feel like I can hear the voice of the divine
telling me that everything is going to be fine
and that one day once again I will find
the inspiration that will add to the life's work
of the eternal God of Poetry.
