Bitter is the Fruit

March 9, 2017

Bitter is the fruit

Born of a jealous heart

Wishing for what wasn’t

Regretting what was


Eclipsing the beauty of what is

In the shadow of what isn’t

Despising patience and wisdom

Desiring the end in the now


Free the end to its own time

Release what can’t be held

Open to the beauty of now

Overshadow the lack of what isn’t


For what isn’t yet may be

If the now plants the seeds

That grow into what will be

Patience, peace, compassion, love
