A poem for hard times
If you encounter something painful or difficult, know that there is a point to what you are experiencing.
Know that life is always for you. Know that nothing can harm you.
Give thanks for the people and situations that really touch you deeply, no matter if it is seemingly positive or negative.
In those times, you can truly connect with your soul, with your deepest core.
Connect to your power of transcendence and become fully alive.
something comes along and opens you up
right down the middle
and who you thought you are spills out
the river swells
and the wind howls the dust of your soul
you know that you don’t know
and all you cling to crumbles
let your lovers love themselves
this is your calling
forced to be present
any other place unbearable
this is your gift
let life empty you
break you open
until you are
filled with light
