From beginning to end, life is to be lived. The fuller the better, with no regrets left dangling when our time comes. Not everything will be charming, nor will it all be devastating. Take the good, accept the bad, alter what you can to achieve more comfort.
Putting our fingers in fires
we rolled down mountains
eagerly consuming ego paths
of reason and invitation,
traversing fences, leaping gates,
chasing balloons and butterflies
of promise while toasting sunsets,
weeping over mortality and pain,
there is only ever the blurred
horizon of experience.
The world is full of wondrous hope
If only we could see it and touch it
Kindness that can create and heal
Gives life, and helps another feel
I lost my mind and found out who I am
If I were to say the words on my mind
Would it change anything at all?
I have grown up and I found out
How to feel, and what life is about
