once you've tasted bitterness

dear one, once you’ve

tasted

how bitter


this world

this life

can be


I hope; I pray

that you

remember


where you came from

whose you are


and how many

came before you


you


so that


you could be here

you could experience

you could live

you could love


and you could

find

the most beautiful

thing


just to have it

gut you again


you could lose

you could break

you could shatter

you could die a

million tiny

awful

deaths


and still find your way

back home to


trust

trust

trust

trust


not in the action but in the spirit

the spirit that brought you forth


everything

in nature

tells us that

the birth and death

cycle

brings forth the

most beautiful

sweetness


but first,


the bitter.
