Sacred Gift
Forever, I shall be grateful
Till death unto me
The sacred gift of suffering
The extreme irony

Therefore failures lead to growth

Should superstition be a religion
believing in luck either way,

remain piratically rampant.

reductive hard word choices,
to describe and prescribe spiritual experiences
are unsatisfactory for daily consumption and absorption
as they reify exceptions to your Business As Usual,

Our race against extinction.
We all come from the same cradle.

Ever noted the many adaptations of ‘tired’?
How much you miss sleep when fatigue leaves you wired?
Try to find the right words to reflect how you feel
When drained, worn out, weary
Trying to wake’s not ideal
