Crossroads and constant change.
Written by Maria Cahill


I’m empty now but
like the moon I’ll be full once more
a cycle that must
reveal the patterns of what’s in store
If I can smile in the traffic
then my day might be magical

I’m ready to cut
the chains that have bound me to this ground floor
to find brief respite
precious time to let my spirit soar
I wanna laugh everyday and still decide when to stay away

My rune is standstill
though my pace is the speed of sound
I’ve gotten my fill
turn my back on my life work’s vow
but I must wait with patience
if I want revelations

I’ll climb the steep hill
just to take the next step that’s not down
just need a cheap thrill
when my soul’s in the Lost & Found
but at the top of this mountain
the moon’ll celebrate what I’ve found
