by Jenny Leigh Hodgins
Shining like a pot of gold
this light within--
my promised land.
I want to hold it in the
palm of my hand--
and truly understand
how the years of
ups and downs
dramas told, tragedy,
built this composite of me-
That when reflected upon I see
as a bright, burning potential
taking misery to mission
changing pain into credential
Defined by my decision
to purify my heart's vision.
This brilliant treasure in my life--
Glistening Jewel that I possess
emanating from the Paradise
that exists inside of me--Nonetheless,
can seem so far away, I confess.
Peeling away false layers of reality,
I've learned to look beyond illusion
like fame or fortune in society
--such things are mere delusion;
Fleeting, empty, yet in *fusion*
with the total life, the picture whole;
The truth that everything connects--
from macrocosm to unique soul...
--that a single prayer injects into
the story one person directs...
and if I am the actress upon this stage,
I wrestle like madness against all sorrow, in struggles and torment,
I raise myself to change tomorrow
To climb again, my Kilimanjaro...
