just waiting

the shift will come

the oceans will become rivers
and take us from this plane

there is a new world
waiting just below
the surface of all
that we think is possible.

nausea comes as i traverse
counties on familiar highways

i am changed
and so is this place
but it is not enough

i want more than
this world has taught us
to believe is

i want a new understanding
of what it is to live,
to breathe, to succeed
in this life as a human

i want all that we’ve
pushed aside or forgotten
or never known, all the
goodness and love
that has ever been

to come pouring down,
the purest rain.

i welcome the clouds.
