Liberating Encounter

12/22/2015

Is there anyone you know

who hasn’t cried,

who hasn’t made mistakes

and hurt someone?

Is there anyone you know

who isn’t like Adam and Eve

discovering the pain and shame

of absurd existence,

of killing, eating and crapping,

of navigating strange insertions

and attachment to

compulsions, repulsions,

disassociations and losses,

finally ending

with one’s own death?

Hey, the hurt is reason enough

to hold each being close,

at least offering

laughter,

a drink to quench thirst,

a kind word.

Nothing at all to be gained

(in fact, always without lack),

still, they’ll be liberated

just in the arms

of pointless care,

as will you.
