Why is it…. that it is only when stripped bare
-when brought to our lowest depths
that we remember life has greater meaning?

Why can’t we keep our third eye open…always?
-seeing beyond praise from men and

the fruitless pursuit of earthly gain
knowing full well, all pales in significance

in the face of humility, love and peace….with each other

Why learn our lessons the hard way?
