Pain is Power

Pain is Power

All pain-
Must transform thus:
Phoenix from the ashes,
Poetry’s enduring legacy,
World heals.

For this-
Need to let go:
Rusting toxicity,
Wrap myself with calming waters,
Give shade.

It means-
I can be all:
Human, teacher, sage, seer,
Passing on nuggets on the way,
Fill void.

We love-
New directions:
Pain, joy feel the same here,
Life understood as illusion,
All blends.

We trust-
genuine souls:
People, who’ve lived their teach,
Ready to gift others meaning,
Bright souls.
