To Know This World

Photo: (c) Jamie K. Reaser

To know this world
is to surrender to the hostile forces
of Love –

The ones that leave you naked
and struggling with your anonymity
in the face of everything that
has recognized your magnificence.

I say this not out of experience,
but out of faith in that which
is determined to bring us alive
even as we make grand investments
in our reluctance
to live.

What can a day be for
but to
open the eyes?

When you love yourSelf

Even this is possible.
