paradox of me

I am free, I am caged 

I am beautiful, I am ugly

I am tranquil, I am rage

I am ignorant, I am a sage 

I am freedom and the cage 

I am beauty and ugliness 

I am tranquility and the enraged 

I am ignorance and the sage

I am oppressed and the oppressor 

I am the swirling waves and the rocks the ocean crashes against 

I am sound and the space 

I am creation and annihilation 

I am the singular and the multitudes & both at once 

Looking for me in one or the other is futile 

Spark the wildness within & allow yourself to fully experience me

It won’t always be pleasant & you will want to retreat; that’s ok

Be brave, my child, this human life you live is cosmic play
