from within

Nothing difficult to understand about this.

Here is the nature of the abyss

I want you to know:

 

That composure gained in contemplation

Often breaks down in cold light of the day.

And that is OK.

**

That the butterflies take sudden reign

Like a swamp of vicious wasps in the stomach.

We feel pain.

**

That supreme confidence does not set us free

From feeling at times small and unloved.

Confidence halved.

**

That sometimes tears swell in our eyes

Coming from both sunshine and rain

Cannot explain.

**

That taking each step towards the Sun

Makes the Shadow grow deeper and longer.

Both weaker and stronger.

**

That the fear often acts as a drug,

Blinding us to own perception.

With no exception.

**

That ‘creative’ will always mean ‘tension’

With a smidgen of ‘loss’ thrown in.

All is not ‘win’.

**

That today’s violent gust of emotion

Will replace yesterday’s calm and still.

Again ill.

**

That a great wave of doubt enters these shores

And sweeps us away screaming, into the sea.

Let it be.

**

That the call of the unknown crashes the comforts

Of the familiar, making us hot and queasy.

Nothing easy.

**

That anticipation of the coming day can make us afraid,

And the night becomes a useless comforting buffer.

We suffer.

**

That there are no definite answers to anything

No matter how much we believe and know.

This is flow.

**

That this is a breathing and feeling experience

On the see-saw of daily life and death.

To die and be born every day.

All bless.
