Good Intentions

The world means well.

Life means well.

Let these be the thoughts that rise when experience sinks you below a comfortable horizon.
.
.
.

In times of strife and restlessness, I take solace in the idea that every cell of every natural thing is born with good intentions;

This goodness so often meets with darkness and becomes

dimmed
.
ill
.
twisted
.
bitter



When Heaven knows

We all want happiness
.
peace
.
health
.
and a sense of belonging


And there is unity in our shared experience of challenge:

We all cry
.
struggle
.
lose clarity
.
and feel pain

.
I believe in light renewed

for those powerful enough to know how to be their own new dawn.
.

And I pray for those weakened by sadness, illness, rancor or shame

to learn the art of rising.
