POETRY WE LOVE

What sustain us from the inside as we navigate this crazy world

  • Everything Is Waiting for You

    Your great mistake is to act the drama
    as if you were alone. As if life
    were a progressive and cunning crime
    with no witness to the tiny hidden
    transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny
    the intimacy of your surroundings.

  • In The Arena

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

    For the Perfectionists

  • Let This Darkness Be a Bell Tower

    Quiet friend who has come so far,

    feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
    Let this darkness be a bell tower
    and you the bell. As you ring,

    what batters you becomes your strength.

  • Your Conflicts

    Your conflicts, all the difficult things, the problematic situations in your life are not chance or haphazard. They are actually yours. They are specifically yours, designed specifically for you by a part of you that loves you more than anything else. The part of you that loves you more than anything else has created roadblocks to lead you to yourself. You are not going in the right direction unless there is something pricking you in the side, telling you, “Look here! This way!”

    For Turbulent Times

  • The Dark Hours of My Being

    I love the dark hours of my being.
    My mind deepens into them.
    There I can find, as in old letters,
    the days of my life, already lived,
    and held like a legend, and understood.

    Then the knowing comes: I can open
    to another life that’s wide and timeless.

    So I am sometimes like a tree rustling over a gravesite
    and making real the dream
    of the one its living roots
    embrace: a dream once lost
    among sorrows and songs.

    Rilke

    For the Afraid

  • The Unbroken

    There is a brokenness
    out of which comes the unbroken,
    a shatteredness
    out of which blooms the unshatterable.

    For Uncertain Times

  • The Invitation

    It doesn't interest me
    what you do for a living.
    I want to know
    what you ache for
    and if you dare to dream
    of meeting your heart's longing.

    It doesn't interest me
    how old you are.
    I want to know
    if you will risk
    looking like a fool
    for love
    for your dream
    for the adventure of being alive.

    For the Overwhelmed

  • Our Deepest Fear

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness
    That most frightens us.
