Sunday Night Slam: “Mountain”

There is a place
Between life and death
Where the sky opens up
And takes away your breath
Beyond love and hate
Beyond every mistake
At the top of everything
Where blackbirds fly
And eagles sing

Where wind cuts with a blade
And joy feels like pain
A place without fear
Where you can still hear
The drumming of hearts
Beating together at once
A world in a grain
Of sand, or drop of rain

Where the truth is free
For every eye to see
Where silence
Has so completely overpowered
The violence
Of loud angry voices
Making sad and fearful choices

That for a moment you remember
What you used to know
A long, long time ago
You remember
For a moment
How to find your way home.
