awaken into me,
o awakener;
awaken me into rest.

in transcending me
teach me to transcend
desire for you.

teach this knower doubt,
doubter of self,
faithfully unbelieving.

unbound, unbind me.
unmade, unmake me.
un-needy, dissatisfy me;

thirsty and unquenched,
yet undesiring.
in uncertainty, stability-

to un-be as you are not
is life eternal
spanning an eyeblink.

unfastening me
i, untethered, float
into the void of your being.

made nothing, all.
unknowing, wise.
unbeing, alive.

in inverting, reverted;
having been reflection,
now the object embodied.

--JH
damage is a birthright.

a recognition
an evolution
an unburdening enlightenment

we cannot unmake damage
without unmaking the damaged

so damage is repaired
subtly or proudly

we're afraid of damage
of being damaged
of damaging
and we call the fear kindness

but damage is a birthright.

so a hole is patched
and damage becomes comfort

so a wound is stitched
and damage becomes character

so a song is sung
and damage becomes community

so a rip is sown
and damage becomes opportunity

so a cut is bandaged
and damage becomes experience

so a cry is uttered
and damage becomes humanity

whether we repair damage
by filling our cavities
with color matched amalgam

or by performing kintsugi
on our souls

damage is a birthright


--JH

I am a bipolar angst-ridden teen-masquerading-as-an-adult. I have been an 'aspiring author' since I was 13 years old, but have never managed to complete anything substantive. I also have low self-esteem, am an utter nihilist, and never know what to put in the Bio section.
