the weight of the world


These days I’m a little older. The weight of the world no longer sits on my shoulders. I am learning now to forgive, a little more easily. And although this is my journey, it is one I enjoy more in good company. We all make mistakes, it’s the only way we learn. Perfection should never be the aim, so be proud of the scars you’ve earned. And just as there is pleasure, there is pain. We won’t make it out alive, none of us are staying. So however you choose to live, there will be casualties. You can tiptoe all you like, life will still drop you to your knees. And you may disagree, with the things I choose. You may think you can do better, so it’s a damn good thing you have your own time to use.

And I’ve been wandering now, for awhile. The days are getting longer, and I’ve stopped here to ponder, as the Canadian spring begins to creep in. I’m loving, I’m learning and I’m living in this space. And I’m here with beautiful souls, who have me wrapped in a warm embrace.

And my family, they are rarely near. But still, and always, I hold them dear. If I close my eyes, I can feel them. And if there’s something to be said for love, it should be said more often.

I’ve forgiven, misgivings. I’m always open, to new beginnings. There are certain looks that speak volumes, in silence. And in the end, there may not be reason, but there can certainly be kindness. Words are often not enough, to say what we really need to say. Things are rarely black and white, we do most of our living in the grey.

I’m still unsure why people think they know what is best for everybody else. Slowly I am learning, I know only what is best for myself. All we can do is be there, for the ones we love the most. We can only love, we cannot fix what we think is broke. So we must love them in the sun, and love them in the rain. We must love and accept them fully, because one day we will never see them again.

So I’ll travel my road, and you can travel yours. When decisions must be made, you can open your own doors. And I won’t judge your failings, if you don’t judge mine. I won’t push or rush you, if you let me take my time. Let us just walk here in silence, for awhile.

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent HH the Dalai Lama
