I don’t want to lose

My notion of vulnerability

As a strength

By discovering all these ways to stay strong

I must remember they are all indebted

Working with their own shadows

I’ll ask for what I hope

What I hope is  right thing

I’ll try to remember

Asking the right questions

Brings us hopeful answers

I’ll always dream beyond what they say

Of reality of solidity

Although knowledge,  virtue, what’s right indeed

Is what saves us so esoterically

What’s immortal seems mortal

While what’s mortal seems immortal

I’m attempting with language

I’m trying to translate

I’m seeing what stays with solidarity

Despite a shifting imagery
