All We Ever Need

Standard

Softening.
Little by little
loosening up,
letting the frozen expectations
melt into appreciation
of this moment as it is.

Observing the reactivity,
followed by the remorse,
then the frustration arising
from the thought
I should’ve learned how
to do better by now.

Practicing self-forgiveness.
Finding the chinks in the armor
to let the light in.

Softening.
Welcoming the being,
the tenderness
that waits
behind the
rigid constructs
of habitual thought
and mistaken identity.

Awakening
bit by tiny bit
to the beauty that is now,
the marvelous treasure
that is all we ever have
and all we ever need.
