Incomplete and sweaty

Incomplete…a song by Alanis Morissette. (lyrics adapted)

One day I’ll find relief. I’ll be arrived and I’ll be a friend to my friends who know how to be friends.
One day I’ll be at peace. I’ll be enlightened and I’ll be married with children and maybe adopt.
One day I will be healed. I will gather my wounds forge the end of tragic comedy.

I have been running so sweaty my whole life, urgent for a finish line. And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete.

One day my mind will retreat and I’ll know God and I’ll be constantly one with him night, dusk, and day.
One day I’ll be secure like the women I see on their thirtieth anniversaries.

I have been running so sweaty my whole life, urgent for a finish line. And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete. Ever unfolding. Ever expanding. Ever adventurous and torturous and never done.

One day I will speak freely. I’ll be less afraid and measured outside of my poems and lyrics and art.
One day I will be faith-filled. I’ll be trusting and spacious, authentic and grounded and home.

I have been running so sweaty my whole life, urgent for a finish line. And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete.
