My life begins!

I have seen the new dawn

And the clarity of my vision

Has given me the world as word

Its people as love.

What has been unraveled and piecemeal

Now fits me like a seamless robe.

I shed the darkness which shrouded me with

Confusion and doubt,

For the openness of wisdom and spirit.

I breathe the freshness of light.

It is the Easter of my being.
