THE TERRIBLE BECOMING

It is all a terrible becoming.
All things end.
You end.
I end.
Our time together ends.

Though, the terribleness isn't located in that end,
but in the awakening to the certainty of that end

The journey then,
Is in growing strong enough to hold this terribleness

So that each day,
Each step,
Each breath,
We have the strength to choose to be present

To give equal attention to the terror, joy and awe
That all surround us each moment
