Within

There is something within you
that no amount of striving will summon forth
every ounce of your disciplined strength
falls short
even tighter seals the door to the universe you do not see within
A force that indwells and surrounds you
no less a part of you than you of it
and if you just accept your continuity with all
what wondrous beauty might you unleash
but dear, I shed a tear
nay, many
when I see your mistaken resolve
so determined to be separate
a self-forged cage of loneliness
you wonder why none speak your name
deaf to the pleas that you release the mask
blocking all voices and faces
How long will you live in terror of love?
