If you can learn
to get
out of your head,
and drop into
the space of
your heart,
you will find
solace on the up beat,
and mercy on the down.

It will begin
to teach a language
long forgot,
and invite you
to step away from
the shadows
on the wall of the cave;
for they are simply
pretty illusions,
that never really mattered

It will take you up-
into the grace of sun,
so you can better see
what’s real,
and learn to walk
in the face of light.

And when you tell it:
It hurts.
It hurts.
It hurts.

It will always answer
with the truest of trues:
Love heals.
Love heals.
Love heals.
