Why We Are

Why do we fear conflict
when conflict brings us growth?
Why do we shrink in terror
when terror is in our minds?
Why do we abuse our lovers
when abuse has been done to us?
Why do we barb our words
when we accuse others of barbing theirs?

We are braver than we know
and we must face what is ahead
We are calm when in the now
and we must dwell within our center
We are healing with word and deed
and we must do this with all others
We are mindful with our actions
and we must be forever more

    …Being aware and mindful and in the moment…indeed, suffering breaks you apart and then rearranges you again in a stronger, more grounded, more focused place than you were before. Lovely poem, I could connect with this one… ! 🙂
