Lightning

If I am struck down,
let it be by a thought so magnificent
it changes the shape and texture
of the universe;

If I am broken,
let be under the weight of the words
of a poet, overcome by passion
and madness;

If I change,
let it be because I am evolving,
not because I’ve been tread upon
or defeated;

If I am to be saved,
let it be by that which is in me,
let it be that inchoate song
that swells and strikes my heart
like lightning.
