When it's Done

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


And when it's done,

my soul upon a sleeve,

vulnerable yet free,

bleeding yet transformed,

having given truth wings,

secrets disclosed,

lies amended,

and a heart

in full disclosure.


When it's done,

I'll sleep like a baby,

unperturbed,

in blissful abandon

of dreams colourful

and lucid,

past resolved and forgiven,

life approved

and appreciated.


When it's done,

I'll celebrate,

know that I've tried,

regardless of failure,

regardless

of what I have accomplished,

and my heart will feel

warm in the knowledge,

that I acknowledge, I am a part.


When it's done,

I can finally rest,

not consider the details,

the incessant mental chatter,

of a mind in consideration,

trying to understand,

a life filled with ambiguity,

inequity and the malice,

of narcissistic leaches.


But until then,

I shall keep writing,

with all I know

and have discovered,

hoping that someone, somewhere,

will heed my words,

listen to the beauty,

reject the cruelty,

and accept love as all that matters.


A writer I have always been, and a writer I shall remain, until it's done.

      Glad you connected Jamie. We all share so much as writers, observing the world from our particular perspective and sharing, heart on sleeve, what it all means to us. Take care.
