The Time Has Arrived ~ by Lynn Thompson
When I step outside the web of networking,
all there is, is space. When I am in my body
and yet beyond the limit of skin, all there is, is air.
I am more than anything I have ever thought,
beyond anything my imagination has created.
Now I am ready to believe this, the two images align
and there is no gap between them.
I am who I have always been,
and as surprised as anyone to recognize this is true.
After all this time, I get to go home,
where I have been a visitor for so long.
After all this time, it is as natural
as when I got on the train
with a duffel bag and a vague idea of a plan.
Now I am graduating from thirty-four years of growth
and finding treasure within myself, and beyond myself,
in a wealth of friendships and banquet of learning.
I am grateful, I am willing, I am able, I am ready.
