Tapestry unwoven


Take all that I am,
All the growth and love and light
And all the despair and shrugging of shoulders,
And continue, ever onwards, ever inward.
Even if the corrupt cops barge on through my gate again,
Even through battling on without electricity and dealing with evasive government officials,
And literally keeping a calm outlook within, but outwardly objecting, hypothesizing, fantasizing about a perfect and agreeable existence.
Tara, Amitabha, Shakyamuni, Shantideva have given me strength, a calm mind, and glimpses into Pure Land.
