If We Wish To Be One

We long to see the quiet light
without the violent storm,
feel life’s gentle touch
without the biting sting,
know the sweet truth
without the bitter failings.

No, we do not desire suffering
but suffering is built
into the workings
of the Universe,
and we cannot escape it
if we wish to be as One.

  2. I love this one, Dennis. No one is drawn to suffering but possibly we could not know joy if we do not also suffer. (Sounds very Taoist!) How are you doing? I’ve been away for a while.
