To Be Alive

Kesa B Day 092

What is all of life,
it’s ups and downs,
what are they for?

What is all knowledge gained worth?
What is all love received,
all hope,
all peace,
what is it for?

To be poured out,
soul and spirit;
as a beacon of light.

Our stories uplift.
Our paths inspire.
Our life is to be shared.

How long will we continue
to run and hide
from divine purpose?

All else is but nothing.
Nothing will fulfil
or satisfy.

No amount of “friends”,
or “likes”.

We are not grand in ourselves,
not full.
We cannot feel useful
until we are poured out,
losing self in service.

Losing self
finding love.

No longer hungry
and yearning,
but satisfied,
