Eyes of love and deeds of service,
Initiative and dedication,
Energy rising, energy falling:
Alive with purpose!
Then bleak with entrapment – this burdensome love!
Struggling up for air… reaching desperately for self-care
then when rested and refreshed
ready to reengage and repeat.
This tumbling cycle can conceal and screen
the power beyond “little me”
a new story beyond “poor me”.
