Poem - To Be Whole

The poem "To Be Whole" is about my struggle with life, the lessons I've learned, and a prayer that these lessons are enough.


To Be Whole

To be whole
I first must break
upon the rocks
of my ego's fate

choices made
when I was insane
will find peace
when swept away

exhaustion calls
when body breaks
blessed rest
follows the race

oh so lonely
desiring a touch
compassion follows
for others such

suffering states
humanity's plight
allowing insight
to the whole of life

the end seduces
the easy out
may these lessons
resist the doubt.
