Courage Called For

Courage is demanded

to stare into the darkness of an airless tunnel of despair

where no light shines, not even at the end…

Courage is demanded

to be a door for fears and despairs to pass through,

and open you to your separateness…

Courage is demanded

in the airless tunnel of despair

that separates you from yourself…

Courage is demanded.

to become the light…

if only because otherwise there would be none.

 — (c) St. John 2012

River Flowing

I am like water

That washes over your body

Picking up pieces of your DNA

Your hopes

Your dreams

Your pains.

I flow off your body

And I leave you

But you don’t leave me.
