I feel safe as I walk the dark, wet streets
despite the preponderance of red and blue lights among vehicles.
I Am supported by the ground, as it gives me just enough to survive another day.
I Am rooted in this town that I’ve adopted
and it envelops me in security
despite the assault in progress around the corner
or the fiend in withdrawal up the block.
I have a home away from home that nurtures my mind and soul with words.
With the wings of an eagle I soar, looking down on my co-creation.
As above, so below.
As Father God’s sun irradiates the earth
my Love for Mother Earth radiates from me
to everyone and every space that I inhabit.
I Am innocent. I Am safe. I Am Love.
M.T. Bernard 2/2/16
