Contrary

Why is it that
we are so attracted to
what is most contrary
to who we have become?

Has time undone
the masks of our propriety?
that we may finally be
the flow of love that sets us free

And yet within this compliment
of opposition's bent
we find the magic of
eternal and resplendent love

seeking only to replace
the feel of pain with grace
to rise beyond the atmosphere
of what we held as dear

in days gone by
and now we fly
through galaxies of our own making
and spirit flies, anticipating

the essence of the light
that shines so bright
upon us all
