Not So Far Down the Road

Not so far down the road
I would want to sing like this
To sing and make the seams of a stubborn heart snap
To sing a song that makes the flat line jump
To sing the life out
To sing until the gasping could breathe
To pulverize the immovable doubt
To change the game
And send a wave rushing in
And lift the tendons of your suffered heart
Into a pieced together newness that once again can beat
without gasping, but with a strength that’s no longer shaken by the hurricane
