But What Of Suffering


The words. Yes, perhaps the words.
But what of the pain.
The pain consumes, it fills, it overwhelms.
Will the words stop the pain?

Perhaps, just perhaps, the words can bring a new moment.
Is one moment possible,
just the next one.
Is it possible to be mindful of just now, this moment?
Is it possible… to breath
Just one breath in this one moment.
Is it possible for awareness to be in this one moment, this one breath.

Perhaps the words will lead to a moment in place of pain
Awareness of only the moment, the breath.
Maybe then another moment.
