Gabriella Alziari


I wanted to inspire,

I wanted to transform


I wished that all I touched

would turn

to gold


I wished

for every splinter

to become a hidden sword,

to cut away the chords

and heal my twisted heart


In the midst of darkness,

within my aching slumbers,

I woke up

to a dream,

I touched a ray of glory


My spirit showed me then

I am what I need

to be


I saw

I have become

the things I

always wanted
