Just stay here

When we feel pain, anger, sadness we normally try to numb our pain with substances or activities. But only acceptance and presence can lead to healing, never avoidance.

Stay here
stay with yourself.
What you don’t like,
what
are you trying to escape?

 

There is no way
out of yourself,
no sweets no trips
to move your attention
far from yourself.

 

Just stay here
feel all the pain
the sadness the rage
aren’t pleasant nor wrong,
thus, just stay here.

 

You can’t change
what you escape.
Stay here because
you won’t clean the room
by denying its mess.

 

Just stay here
stay with yourself,
there isn’t easier way
for you to heal.
Thus, just stay here.

I’m a poet

Being a poet is not an activity, but a state of being. It is a life in connection with the energy of beauty. It is the blessing of translating in words a myriad of subtle sensation, while using those same words to inspire other people.
