breaking free to grow

What spirit
what friend
could hold
my heart

that I could trust
to never harm
my body
my feelings
my mind

a panacea
of gentleness
real love
without pride

with whom if
there is
inevitable hurt
we learn
and this prompts us to
grow even further
completely.

I trust you
am bound to you
in love

if I were hurting
or ill we would be there
for comfort
never abandoning
this is… Samaya

Love.

Even if my sangha
is but only one
a solitary real friend

is better
than an ocean
of theater masked
robed falsity

I relinquish
the vows offered
invisible chains
broken
entrapped into
spiritual slavery
no more

and vow to find
and listen to no one’s
heart but my own
gnosis~

care, tears, ethics, benefit
are what will inspire
reflection, action

just as He suggested.
