Holding My Heart

A Poem by Robert Strock

Follow your soul I say
What stops me this day?
Is it my false wisdom mind?
That makes my open heart hard to find
The subtle contractions to get my own way
Collisions inside and out every day
Gradually I learn the nature of flow
And to realize most suffering need not go
Deep trust and helplessness can coexist
In fact otherwise something is missed
A prayer to soften with what I do not like
Does support the heart to become light
A yearning to love grows no matter the state
Finally, the yearning has no reasons to wait
Faith and pain are true partners in life
Making it clear that they support less strife
To think we have arrived with only bliss
Seems to be surely amiss
Tenderly holding loss, failure or fear
Being graced to be closer to all that is near
