When a spark discovers you,
do not flee or hide.
Scoop it up with loving hands,
and dare bring it inside
Be generous and give it space.
It needs the room to grow.
Let the fledgling flame ignite,
and encourage it to glow.
It will erupt in wild blaze
the more courageously you tend.
Pay attention when it speaks your name.
Sit beside your beaming friend.
Allow yourself to run right through
the holes in unconvincing mask.
Flow into a pool of truth,
in loving wisdom bask.
It’s here you see so clearly
you never needed that disguise.
This shell will never fit the same,
no choice left but to rise.
Tomorrow, take your flame along,
and trust her with your sight.
One majestic spirit,
together bathe the world in light.
