Cannot fall for deception when
hungry for life.
There’s an angel inside of me
her name is ‘faith.’
Life is eating, breathing, loving.
Loving is the eternal present
Every face is beauty
and it always works out somehow.
I don’t know how how, but it does!
The angel and the warrior in me
are merging. The face of what I cannot
see, nor need to believe.
I am alive now. What matters is
all the past is now gone. There’s this
wonderful now moment, even in the midst of fear.
I do not fear fear today.
Moving toward my life, living in my breath.
What other temple is there?
Sitting at the alter of my broken shadow,
loving all parts, and trusting in the sacred.
Seeing the monsters on the walls have
shapes that form into smiles, too.
I will hug myself through it.
I CAN do it!
Today I don’t have survivor’s guilt. Today I DO for my family, for my sangha.
Today I find a little bit more bravery than I had yesterday.
