    This was mine.
    This thought
    I originated.
    I said Begin,
    blew a kiss
    through my mind
    and it was.

    I said, Think,
    and it originated
    I said Love,
    and there was language
    talking to itself.

    I said Believe,
    and it aligned
    Strive,
    and there was movement
    Form,
    and it took shape
    It began to
    build, to grow.

    There is reason
    an axis for chaos
    the all-seeing eye
    of the storm
    a centering ground
    an elemental heaven
    there is me
    and this was mine

    but this,
    I gave you
    this,
    my surrender
    this
    was mine, but
    oh, my darlings,
    This
    was not my doing.
