If I let myself cry it all out I will have
the patience and available shoulder
for others to cry too.
If I gently wipe away my tears, breathe,
and stand upright again, I will encourage
others to heal without force
If I walk with open eyes and and an
open mind I will remain curious about the
differences among my companions along
the journey, instead of being frightened
If I shield my truth at any moment for
shame, or worse, pride - I will judge others
rather than be inspired by their determined
If I run and hide from adversity I won’t
run to anyone’s aide.
If I avoid conflict by allowing abuse
I won’t have the stamina to fight for
If I let hurt increase my fears, my heart
will be stroked by paralysis and I will feel
nothing…for myself or anyone else.
Pain is the marker of how deeply I can feel
and how alive I am. It teaches me what
I need to know about humanity - not to reject
it, but to embrace it - with all it’s flaws and fuckery.
To live in compassion means I must embrace
ALL of my life.

I’ve moved from self medicated
to self mediated…
next step is self meditated

Moment to moment
New worlds expanding
Galaxies of ideas in the
Vessel of Time
in which we imagine
Carrying pieces of dreams
wrapped in expectation
Weighted by fears
Floating like memories
On a string of delightful hopes
And exchanged through Love
Into the eternity of the unknown…
Freedom has the awesome responsibility to create a path of tranquility.
Freedom is the brother of bravery, the sister of courage, the father of defiance, the mother of hope and the child of sacrifice.
Freedom is the ability to cogitate without the threat of death or injustice.
