2.7.18 We Endure

IMG_1800

We are fickle, fragile beings

made of thoughts that disconnect us

and experiences that slowly tie us back together again

It’s amazing – sometimes

how the pitfalls and potholes of life

are often the very things that bring us back to level ground

What is it about proximity to a low point,

that finally garners enough of our attention

to make us look up

Of dust

we are earth and her ashes

yet our spirits eternally crave our return to the stars

We subdue and repress

to the plights of a world we can’t control our part in

just to numb and then hide from the feelings we’ve neglected for

far

too

long

We are fickle and fragile

too stubborn to part with the bank of emotions we’ve saved

as a treasure

as a curse

And we use the excuse of the pleasures and pains

to somehow forgive our shell casts and remains

evolve but don’t change

we are ever the same

we move on

we stand still

we endure

  1. “Evolve but don’t change.” I have been thinking about this concept as of late, wondering about perceived evolution vs. change. We really are stronger than we often think or feel. Thank you for these beautiful words.

    • Thank you Katia! And yes. God grants us with strength in moments we could never have anticipated. We may not always want to have to be … but we are strong … we can endure.
