Open To The Sky - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

'I could open to the sky' she said
have all my cautions fall away
in the wily wind;
give in to impulse drive
and let life fall
all around
and call this fate.

I could simply deny myself
nothing
and accept everything;
be the cork
on the party scene;
some do that.

I could put myself in life's way
and hope that something happens to me;
that's what I think some people do.

I could stay here and stagnate
just to see what will be the end of this
stagnate movie reel.

I could cry just to see how many tears can fall.
I could end up waiting for that bus of life which never comes.

Maybe it won't be this way always. Maybe one day
things will change and landscapes will tilt
and I will come falling out
in a pretty dress
yelling
'I told you so.
I am alive!

Yeah that how it will be.
That's how I want it to be.
That's what it needs to be.

Help me please get on that road.
Just having trouble finding where
is that first step
on that road
where I need to be.

Humm, just thinking about it
is that step.
At least now I feel better
and Time
I feel
is smiling on me
for being smart enough
to reel in the Real.
