The Golden Grape

There’s no more hiding
behind curtains of
magic vines
bearing golden grapes

Eternity awaits
while I’m dying
from the inner conflict
called Life

Golden grape, awaken me
from this Dream on Earth

Give birth within me
to a Child
mistaken for Sanity

Words fail me
while Wisdom does not

Do not forsake me
I’m flying
No more hiding
