get your hands dirty

when I respond to people
the only way I know how
its because I know
how it feels
to have been pulled up by another when
Ive needed it most
but also because Ive somehow survived times
naked and alone through winter
when every door was locked shut
and no one saw me
suffering in there
like I was

I know what alone means
trust me

Ive done it so much
that I can hear thoughts on the wind accurately
I can sense shifts in energy instantly
I can see damn near everything I need to
in your eyes
I cannot tell you how
or why
I just can

its what I know

and arranging words

most of all
Im not afraid
of getting my hands dirty

I'm beginning to understand
it's not what I do anymore
it's who I am

who I've always been
