Rituals

Some start each morning
with a ritual
of screaming at the world
for waking them to another day.
Some use coffee instead
to blunt the pain.
There are a million ways
here
to distract
from the one
problem.

Separation from God,
Lack of Love,
Fear of the Light.
This is the difficult thing
to keep going,
and the difficult thing
to end.

God is always,
always
so willing to help us,
as soon as we accept him
back into our arms.

Listen to the voice
that directs you,
calmly and without
judgement,
in the ways of love.
Make that your practice,
and soon,
you will not scream
anymore
at the prospect
of another
day.
