Who Am I?
Like Magic – A perfect tribute to my niece
By Gary Washington
I remember my yesterdays’ – so filled with sadness!
I had exited the planet earth and all of its madness
So, it seems……
I was content for I knew nothing else,
I was fine with all the pain I felt.
Space! “the final frontier”
self-destruction was near.
I traveled the galaxy,
searching for pieces of a dream;
I encountered the nothingness
that no one else had seen.
I remember asking the Lord, why?
Surely you would tell me Most High!
I don’t really want to die.
I felt like I was drowning in my tears.
It seemed like I had wasted so many years,
I wondered how it all would end.
But more importantly, how did it begin?
As I continued my journey – blind,
I thought I was losing my mind?
I couldn’t see – I had lost my way.
Would there be another day?
But one night something strange occurred…
It was something special about this star,
but I couldn’t reach it – it was just too far.
It said it was coming for me…
I felt alone as if I had left earth, and traveled a million miles into space;
Only to learn I had just exited the human race.
But my Star reached out its annointed hand,
and today complete I now stand.
Every so often I think of my past,
happy and proud I am free at last.
