30" x 40" oil paint on wood panel
Wouldn’t it be great
If we could shine whole
By everything that will inevitably
Crack us open?
I suppose so.
But, it’s also been my experience
That power, once shining
Will only ever reveal the cracks
In the one shining it.
Are your cracks honest and real?
To your vulnerable core?
Connecting your light more thoroughly
To the web of life you find yourself part of?
Do your cracks only allow
For your light to shine for yourself
For power’s sake?
Either is possible.
But rest assured.
Your power is yours.
And.. all of it’s possibilities
Shining from everything
That ever broke and shaped you
Are part of the web of everything.
Pick it up
So as not to break
