In My Pocket a Silken Thread

April 30, 2021

Through eyes of lust is the world viewed

Selfish intentions to get what is needed to survive

Thinking only of one’s own interests and

How can I make this pain go away?

This deep suffering,

“You hurt me!”

How can I forgive you?

How can I see in you the very same Self in me

Wanting to love and be loved

Wanting to know

Life is meaningful and worth the effort to be alive?

For all of its mishaps and blunders

Stumbles and falls…

There is a secret deep within the soul if we are willing to put aside injuries and blame;

Willing to see what is already there

What has always been there

Waiting to be seen with loving eyes wide open

Washed clean in a flood of tears

That threatens to destroy

This bridge between

You and me...

In my pocket I hold onto

A silken thread

As durable as hope and as

Beautiful as life itself.
