As I contemplate my many blessings
Through all of life’s testings
I realize the Universe’s infinity
And the peace and refuge of serenity
Trust in God’s decisions
For you in His divine wisdom
Especially when life is sad
There is serenity to be had
Looking back, could I have done something more?
Something besides staring at the floor
Covered in needles, adrenaline vials spent?
Plastic wrappers tossed aimlessly
My life shattered shamelessly
But I didn’t even think about me
His body, now removed, was all I could see
I did no wrong
But he was gone.
I bent down and cleaned up the mess
Left by those who took him to his final rest.
What’s inside and what’s ouside?
Sure makes for a tumultuous ride!
What is up and what is down?
As you’re spinning all around
Looking inside yourself through a surreal bubble
Are you okay? Are you in real trouble?
Or have you split in two?
I think the dilemma is that you don’t know who…
You are … when you face yourself enclosed
In the psyche of another, the other
As the bubble grows…
Grief is like a rose
Be warned of the thorns
