Three 12 x 48 inch panels



maybe you were always there,

it’s why the voices felt so loud,

when I chased away my faith,

used my mind to plant seeds of doubt.

you were there,

when I gave up all I had,

ignored the little voice that said,

you left yourself instead.

and when I waited for the validation,

the justification for my breath,

you stopped and said,


and I heaved my fear into your chest.

you were there,

you were there,

you were always there.

now you’re here.

now you’re here.

you’re really here.

you cling to my heart,

shove her into a future unknown,

but this time I know,

I am never alone.
