Open Up

from World on Fire by Val Blaha



Open up, step forward, find a new reality. Open up, step forward, suspend your disbelief. The way, the path, a point of view. Breath, learn anew. I need to see, to touch, to feel beyond what I can grasp. I need to know, to love, to fall, to fall in love at last.

Lock up, step backward, shutter your heart, your mind. Lock up, step backward, hands over their eyes. I read to weep, to rage, to wail at truths I wish were lies. I read to cry, to hurt, to fall, to fall back into time.

Open up, step forward, dive into another life. Open up, step forward, watch your soul take flight. I read to sleep, perchance to dream of lives I cannot live. I need to be, to breathe, to fall, to fall and to forgive. To fall and to forgive. To fall and to forgive.
