breaking it all open


I'm breaking it all open

I'm on my knees

I'm frightened

holy gravel, teach me

ancient tree, teach me

golden feather, teach me


what breathes behind my show?

what lives underneath my pride?

what hides inside my story?

who have I hurt with my pain?

oh, destruction

are my masks all that I am?


holy gravel, catch me when I fall

ancient tree, hold me when I feel alone

golden feather, remind me of awe

I might dry up

I may not survive

all twisted inside
