Leaps of Faith

require so little

while dancing on eggshells

offer the best ammunition

for change

I dance until my feet bleed

I think until my brain bursts

I write until my hands cramp

but your little leap of faith

means little to me

as I live with an evolving fire

crisping the voices inside my head

and inflaming my truth.
