when i forget

In the brief moments i forget my true nature
as love,
i shrink back into some tiny creature,
burdened by pain and suffering.
the agonising contrast
of the two experiences,
one of 
and one of suffering,
makes me ever more
willing to drop any and all stories i have carried
with me my whole life.

there is a decision we make in every moment,
always a choice between two ways of meeting life.
the choice we make defines our degree of suffering.
be careful what you choose my friend.
