Burdened by aches
That went bone deep,
The man lifted his head, tears flowing, and sobbed:
“Master, I am so tired of being a slave.
This world lashes me with its pain–
I don’t know how much more I can bear.
Why, Lord, why
Must this world whip me so?
A silky whisper arose in the man’s heart;
And he, feeling a gentle Hand light upon his shoulder, heard:
“Because, dear child,
You know not That which you are.
Whilst you carry the belief
That we are separate,
You will suffer.
And know that we are One.”
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
With heartfelt regards,
