if you can bear it //


if you can bear the truth
dive deeper each day
through the many chambers of your heart
some filled with inexplicable ecstasies
and others, with painful perplexities

what universes our bodies hold
orbiting in great harmony
carrying the mystery of ages
compiled into one being

perhaps even some wars waged within are not our own
but we bear them as human hosts
searching for relief within a spiritual enigma

often we shut it down all together, for it's far too great to bear
to stay a stone, convinced it's a safe clone
but there is a garden that must bloom inseparably,
living off the oxygen we call vulnerability

the time we have isn't enough to seek our entire complexity
but each day we can read a chapter and further understand
we are a gift in life and life is a gift in us
