Because I Have Been Everything

Laura Goodison

Because I have been everything

wild spirit



Now initiate of the order of grace

made keeper of the key of possibility.

All I cannot bear to see, or worship

in others, is in me.

My heart life is open, transparency

my soul's life in otherworlds, secrecy

where midnights meet

and the fount of morning

are all in me

all tides swell and have come

to flood

To reborn me bright O crystal sea

a universe is light in me.
