Inner and Outward Landscape

News,

news or is it news?

Recycled over and over

Disruptive

in individuals’ lives

It feels like the dark curtains

covering up

so much abuse,

cheating-

whatever the latest

REVEAL is.

What about your inner landscape?

Is that in turmoil,

seeking a balance?

“Even when it hurts,

we need to seek

as much clarity

about our lives

as possible.

Pain can be a transition

to new life

if it isn’t avoided

or feared.”

We are drawn

to pleasure

and resist pain.

In resisting,

the pain can become

more intense.

Knowing this,

I ask,

What is the pain

teaching me?

Can I embrace fear,

acknowledge it

and so

reduce it?
