Taking the long way home,
enjoying a few moments
of being responsible to no one
of no one asking for one more opinion, approval or favor
Just me and my car, hurtling through space-
Phone on silent,
Phasers set to stun.
Glad for the long commute as
thoughts finally become my own.
They are left behind, a star system away.
the dreams that are mine alone.
I listen for
the voice at once distant and intimate.
I celebrate again my freedom to be one with the One
whose heart beats within mine
whose Breathe gives me life
whose hands hold mine
whose words speak life and power
Who is everywhere
Who loves me
