I now understand
losses, and heartache
chisel compassion in my being –
an egoless kindness of support
that wasn’t present before,
guiding me to some powerful height
where I can see without eyes,
feel without hands,
and taste without words.
I now know that each one of us
beats rhythmically to the earth’s yearnings
if we only took some time in silence
to leave the self-universe
where everything revolves around
the illusion of drama, suffering, and gluttony.
It’s out there;
It’s in here.
We are all together in this…
and to become united we must dive
into the arms of the unknown
guided by Divinity,
fully capable of evolving from the perception
that pain is always constant
while touching the hands of another
whose journey is a little tougher
to bring comfort with
the expansion of unconditional love.
