a poem: dig deep

dig deep

in moments of discontentment

dig deep

dare to unfold what is really causing your hurt

it is uncomfortable

it can be unsettling

it may be scary

but it is necessary

this is how you can

– over time –

reveal all your true blessings

know your demons

so they won’t control your being

• • •

dig deep

in moments of joy

dip deep

allow yourself to bask in simple love for life

it is free of conditions

it can be standing all alone

it may be the simplest state of existence

but it is real

this is how you can

– without expectations –

carry magic into acts of seemingly ordinary life

count your blessings

so you know where to draw all your light from

-your tiny woman in a giant world
