Can you jump?

the tension on your fingers
stays adamant almost
never goes away

A set of phantom clones
you’ve chosen to carry
are the projections of
what needs to end

Just focus on
the real


Let the heart carol
your songs of life
as it pulsates

go on leap
and pirouette

It’s a stage
of your own

in a lifetime

I am a Japanese immigrant who has lived in the States for over thirty years. From time to time, my life has been interrupted and torn apart in many ways by cultural, racial, and personal challenges and my own perspectives on these matters. But after all, beyond what has transpired in my life is the trust and living with my unchanging spiritual being. They have integrated all my life experiences into One. Thank you for your reading!
