I Have Forgotten

by Art Cavazos

From the wonder, I am aware.

My wisdom is of thousands of lifetimes.

I look at my hands but can not see them.

I look at my life and can see everything.

I will eliminate the horrible and enhance the spectacular.

I am solving, I am calculating.

I can now see faster than the speed of light,

and what is produced is a beautiful void which is pure in thought,

pure in love,

and delicate in sound.

I have acquired knowledge that will heal the sick,

comfort the wounded,

raise the dead.

I have no one to share it with.

I have shifted, I have moved.

In my painful eviction,

light has outrun me,

sound has betrayed me.

I have been cast out of paradise.

I can never go back.

The tether to my mother has been severed,

and I have forgotten.

For the first time in my life,

I cry.
