Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.
Now, why not consider
A lasting truce with yourself and God.
Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
When you finally live
We are each* a divine envoy
Whom the Beloved
Has written a holy message upon.
My dear, please tell me,
Why do you still
Throw sticks at your heart
What is it in that sweet voice inside
That incites you to fear?
Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.
This is the time
For you to compute the impossibility
That there is anything
Now is the season to know
That everything you do
Today by Hafiz *edit by me…original words ‘Hafiz is’
balled up in the corner of your mind
covered over with cobwebs
under the heaviest lock and key
even Indian Jones couldn’t get to this
arc of your self-covenant
anger slowly poisoning you over the years
toxic rivers seeping out
flowing through your veins
as you refuse to touch it
or to acknowledge it can be conquered
the shadowy ghost of events so painful
you have avoided them your whole life
refused to allow
the crumpled, tangled, horrible
nightmare of these memories
to be straightened out
come into the sunlight
to begin waste removal
and cleanup of the mountain of trash
it’s eaten you from the inside out
destroying your peace
and your chances for building the life you deserve
you’ve tolerated much
to gain nothing
will you ever
reach for higher ground?
I pray you will
some fine day
I feel wonder
for how valued we each truly are,
I am amazed at how far, and willing,
God is to go,
to seek just one.
Love is everything
we are all God’s children,
no matter what we choose to do.
