The Universe Knows



There is a stirring within us

that sometimes aches in the belly

knotted throat

throbbing headache

the agitation of its presence

can make us sick.


This is the rotting flesh of our potential.

It is more foul than the flavor of our fear,

the grit of our insecurity

the puddles of our trauma

the mountains of remorse or regret

because our potential

is our service

our gift

our contribution

to being a part of the community


I have often searched for definitions

that offered me peace

air

light

but many evolutions are grounded in singularity

many definitions do not spark hope


there is a stirring inside all of us

and when that trust that taste like freedom

falls into your mouth

it is as if red velvet carpets

have leaked and poured out from your ears

gently cut your wrist

and replaced your

tired

sacrificed

worn out

outlook


into a new, refreshed paradigm that allows you

to continue

forward.



Forward.


Always forward.


Fail forward.

Fall forward.


Forward.
