Ostrich egg with black ink by artist and poet Michael Bailey

LISTEN

Deep inside

is a wish,

a notion to break loose

from any restrictions on my Spirit.

 

Deep inside

is a letter from me

to read to myself

and trust in my madness to be free.

 

Deep inside

I’ve discovered

I have forgotten my worth

and sold myself for pennies.

 

How can I break loose

from this hypnotic world

and rise again from within?

 

How many times

have I pondered this path

only to become distracted?

 

Deep inside

Listen.

 

—Michael Bailey
