Let’s sweep the stage clean and prepare properly this space.
It is meant to be firstly a purging and healing place.
Here I will rant and deliberate and swoon.
Here I will emerge from my cave and howl at the moon.
Here I will step out and dance in the rain.
Here I will recount the journey to the latest bloodstain.
Here I will bare the happy and the sad.
Here we hope to see the battle of good intentions with inclinations that are bad.
Here in this space I will pool all my tears
Categorize and itemize the things that I fear
Here on this stage I will perform till I collapse in a lake of sweat
A bow and humility to every applause and criticism that I get
