Meanwhile in the Ether

While gasping for air a little bubble floated by I was at peace, knowing the end was nigh While sitting outside a warbler landed at my feet Looking at me curiously, hopping along the concrete While plucking words from the ether I had a thought It left my mind, I remembered it, then again I forgot While searching the same spot for the hundredth time I found nothing again while listening to wind chimes While playing guitar I entered a trance like state Where I was free from fear, anger, frustration, and hate While basking in the stillness before the storm I saw shapes and shadows in the void begin to form While pissing in the abyss I flipped my middle finger I walked away satisfied like a victorious gunslinger While lifting up my eyes to the hills I give God praise His light shines upon me through the world's crazy haze While discussing my next move I felt clear direction And I felt confident there was divine connection While putting it to a vote among my internal committee I eschewed all self-doubt, self-loathing, and self-pity While thinking about everything just once more I saw an extremely long hallway with one, red door While reviewing the remains of my old existence I put on my new self and move forward with persistence
