The Path

 

Will you walk with me down the path

Into the heart of the matter?

The seeming odds are inconsequential

As matter ceases to be

For what is left

After “you” are gone?

Who is the life breathing in you now?

Is it the same life as the one before you?

The one you love

The one you hate

The one you feel indifferent to?

These questions matter most

When I am forgetting

Who is who

And what a treasure exists

When we recognize each other

*

The true test comes

When only you are remembering

Can you remember

When he or she or they forget?

When they are yelling at you

Or irritating you

Or making you feel all kinds of uncomfortable

When you feel triggered

Slowly, slowly

A breath comes

Small victories

are gems.
