This is how I learn

This is how I learn to write 
after weeks of longest night
when it seemed like thought took flight 
this is how I learn

This is how I yearn to share
all the triumph and the fear
from this overwhelming year
this is how I yearn

This is how I burn and rage
against the bullshit assholes wage
almost daily, stage and page
this is how I burn

This is how I turn around
after silence, after sound
grateful, humble, deeper ground
this is how I turn

This is how I learn to say
all that's precious in this day
and the next one, I will stay
open, yielding to the way
wonder, pain and hope can play
I am dwelling, I am dwelling
this is how I learn
