LET ME DROWN

Today I am in love
With grief and sorrow
Don’t try and pull me away
Or cheer me up
There is nothing wrong

Let me drown a while
In this vast ocean
I will die ten thousand times
And feel the wave
Of suffering
And my own helplessness

It will be terrible
And beautiful
And, like all things,
Will pass in its own time
I am not the author of any of this
But I surrender into it.

UNCOVER YOUR SELF

You never stopped being your essential self
It just became covered over with layers
Of erroneous beliefs and conditioned ways
Hidden under the weight of trying to be a someone
And now the journey calls you to remove all those layers
And remember the essence.

RELEASE ANGER FROM THE SHADOWS

Old stuck past anger
Creates grievances
In the present

Turned outward
It creates war with the world

Turned inward
It creates war with the self

Ultimately it’s a destructive energy
That begs us to see it, know it, feel it
So it no longer lurks in the shadows
This transforms anger into authority
And creative expression

And it gives us our voice back.
