A Hearty Rejoice

Jury Selection

the first day of his life on earth began,
when a spark of magic from his soul, ran
out from under his feet, and what a joy it was
to be lifted away from the quicksand, of defeat.
and,
his eyes fixated in a state of bewilderment,
as the mirror looked up at him from the palm of
his hand.

just at the leaves kiss the ground, in one of the
sweetest, yes, the sweetest sounds;
so was the sound of the lengths of his hair, diving from
the clippers and finding themselves on the ground,
at the whim of the air.
and,
his frown now a coastal smile,
as the mirror looked up at him from the palm of
his hand.

soon he exclaimed to the heavens a hearty rejoice,
that it wasn’t long at all before baritone is what became
of, the sound of his voice and, love
saw him through, past the windows of blue,
onto,
a new chest like that of a flatland,
a garden on his chin, and, and

oh, one could imagine the feeling.
like the lotus flower unveiling, its
petals for the very first time, or,
like the rain that has been falling, and
now finally giving up the battle to give way for
the sun to shine again. for the sun to shine again,

and,
to wear courage like a cloak, and be oneself
after what seemed like forever and a day, and
then some of wanting to be almost anything else,
oh,
the courage drifts through the air, like melodies from
a hummingbird, playing softly in your ear.

gone away are the tears,
gone away are the fears,
and as a mantra, they say
done away, done away,
done away, done away.

the first day of his life on earth began,
when a touch of magic from his heart, ran
upwards to his mind, creating a light divine, and
what a cathartic release, to break free from misery,
and,
his whole being playing double dutch with the universe,
as the angels looked on, unified in song,
‘my, how proud we are of that man.’
