I think we have a lot of fear and anger
that gets stored up over time
and we don’t dare to face the dragon head-on, with a simple question:
what do you need? what do you want?
what is wrong? Can I help?
the funny thing is, in my life at least,
I keep courting danger from the sidelines.
I will be the one to go down that crazy alley
into the dark cave or
lie in wait beneath the roots of enormous trees overhanging the path
eyes wide, nibbling nails, knees drawn up, quivering, but always
peering out again,
to see what the dark knight will do.
I need to stop this!
Follow the light!
The light is inside and outside too
If you are made of light I will look at you!
If you are teeming with anger I cannot help
as you’re killing me too.
Self, be still
allow the darkness to dissipate
by focussing on that bit of light,
ah, growing like a luminous flower
time to nurture the bloom
time to see its soft petals glowing in the gloom
time to focus on the garden
there is a garden of love, seeded in your heart
bring on the monsoon
water those seeds and
let the growing
