Mirrors

When we ask to be humbled
And to be made compassionate
And patient
And simple
And present
And well
And loving

We will be

it will require us to see all the ways
In which we are not
Humble
Compassionate
Patient
Simple
Present
Well
Loving

we will be asked
To meet these painful truths
With humility
And compassion
And patience
And simplicity
And presence
And wellness
And love

Ain’t no room for pride
On the healing path
The pathless path

Ain’t no room for pride’s cousin
Shame
Neither

Two sides
Two masks
Of the same beast
Same delusion
Of forgetting our true worth
Our true wealth

Anger
Is
Ugly
It is fear
Given voice

We will not give our vessels over
We will not check out
We will not numb
Disappear
Abandon ship
Commit temporary suicide
Leaving our sacred temples
Of our bodies
And minds
In the hands of delusion
And artificial reality

We reject artificial reality

Go outside
Breath air
Be grateful
Allow awe
Feel sunlight
Or starlight
Same same
Look a human in the eyes
With love
Look in the mirror
With love

I am sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you
