Bowl of Tears

Bowl of Tears

A Poem by VALORMORE DE PLUME

Bowl of Tears

 

Life, a parade of circumstance.

Elated, we dance the jitterbug on the

sawdust covered floor of our heart.

~*~

Loathing, we assess only our inadequacy.

Judging, we condemn our self to death.

Life, a bowl of tears in which we swim or sink.

~*~

Escape, would seem preferable, when focused on self.

Therein lies the misconception of aloneness

and the misdirection of concentration.

~*~

If all I see is me, I will be less than astonished.

I see the darkness through the cracks in my motives.

My sculpted facade is rife with such detestable foibles.

~*~

We reach out to help others, this is when we shine.

This is where our merit comes to the fore.

This is reason enough to bare existence.

~*~

You can go home

when your good deeds are done,

not before.

i am by nature introspective and you paint an internal road that is at once brutally honest and overly critical .. our guilt mode can be pretty devastating .. but this path can lead to fine enlightenment .. as we realize we are incapable of "Good" .. and need help ... need forgiveness .. and just as your "Bowl of Tears" points to .. we are fulfilled in service to others .. when our focus changes like that we will step into the light and joy of giving ... sound wisdom ... i am also an optimist and so i am very happy for the positive closing ...

Home is found within and I suppose good deeds give it a good light and warmth. Beautiful write, Val:)
