hello human

today is a beautiful one
because today I'm just Brenda
the darkness has pulled back †
and I'm riding a gentle wave †
finally in a place I don't hurt †
I ache everyday †
feelings flood me †
I write about them †
looking like a lunatic †
it's the only way to separate the thoughts bombarding me †
to be able to recognize the differing entities †
I am well hated for channeling a temptress †  
please don't mistake her for me †
I'm a gentle lady †
mostly afraid of my shadow †
when I am free and my thoughts are my own †
I look over what I've written aghast †
no wonder you pull away from me †
I can't control these beings †
they're out there †  
they aren't a figment of my imagination †
but don't be afraid a war is being waged †
between the dark stars †  
and what I call the natural entities †  
the dark stars were here first †
in a sense I am related to them †
but I've evolved in humanity †
and don't wish to return home to them †
it's my hopes they will learn here †
I have power within me it seems †  
to hold them at bay †
I'm channeling the darkness †  
before it became synonymous with pain †
once there was just deep space †
before the sun, stars, and beings †
there was peace †
I go there to meditate †  
I think sometimes †  
I wish this was all there was †
then I think on all the evolving humans †
and once again I believe in true love †
powerful beings have entered †
my time just being Brenda was short
I'm a channel and a little more †
they ask I reveal my secrets †
I tell you I've hidden the keys from my mortal mind †
but things are on course †
decisions are being made †  
I request you not force my hand †
humanity in progress †
tell me what being human means to you †
