ad vitam

My back is bent
aching from strain
so heavy
this load
My legs are strong
moving toward
purpose
so driven
this soul
My arms are open
stretching ever
outward
so urgent
this ache
My heart is torn
threatening to break
so exquisite
this love
My mind is clear
holding on
to truth
so brilliant
this light
My dreams are vividly
creating worlds of
the possible
from pure
imagined
peace
no regard
for limitations
or laments for
what
never
was
My essence connects
with the power
and promise
of that which the spirit knows
yet the body denies
My life is now
