Theme: Self

When Loneliness becomes Emptiness

Despite the many virtual and real friends
if you feel hollow on the inside
lonely — chilled by the shape
of frosty desolation you stare at —
Know: you are being invited to go within
to sit in communion with Self; the wisdom
of ages securely lodged in its core 

It waits for an encounter with you
who believe yourself to be helpless
It longs to reveal your courage to you
It says — look at me, trust me, for
you and I are one. Come, hold my hand
find all your hidden treasures 
And in their discovery be healed 

Pamper self with forgiveness
love and compassion because, like
everyone else, you deserve them too
Merge into me and become whole
Rest a while in the newfound peace
then emerge unfragmented to set free
the gentle power generating within
