remain

will you go down into the river
of words you do not yet know, and can not control
will you let them flood over you
until you are washed away
will you breathe them in
and let them fill your lungs
- they are broken but powerful -
will you drown here, surrender to the rush of meaning
towards a Future for which you hope
abandon yourself to the promise of Peace
will you ever learn how to
simply
Remain

-LoA

Amazing poem and so powerful, I loved it!
I think I've said this before, but reading your blog is always a learning experience and I feel that I come out with some new knowledge or outlook, I thank you for that.
