In stepping outside, everything moved.
The truth that is now revealed comes
Only when we accept ourselves:
Freeing up to our purity of heart hurts,
Yet speaks up to those we love most.
Holding out our hatred and fears
For all to see has cost too much.
Finding new ways of being alive,
Accepting the floods of emotions,
Unearths a well of abundant time.
Not listening and indifference to others
Is the curse of many, who remain stuck;
Stepping beyond into the darkness,
Into the acceptance of your own pain,
Is to see yourself in others noise:
Anxieties churn avoided by so many,
Is our daily engine, moving us all.

In that moment when the truth
Comes thundering into your life
Seek solace in the journey of others.
Without being selfishly anchored,
In the moment of your loneliness,
You will truly find all who have moved.
Once released it is a truth which holds
But it is a lonely journey less traveled.
