Let's explore the edges
of our vulnerability together
and not get sucked in its black hole,
holding on to each other's hands,
holding on to each other's hearts
in a circle of endless compassion.
No story is too tragic,
too tender in the light
and space of shared awareness.
It is a novel written by us all--
the chapters changing,
characters, settings, and plots variable.
But suffering is all the same,
believing you are a separate star
when you always belonged
to this solar system--
this darkness, this light.
