A Zenish Thought - Poem by JoJo Bean

A Zenish Thought

We are but a swinging door in life
'With every breath we take
The door opens and closes'
Nothing to hold us in
Nothing to close us out
At one moment in time
'I am me
and you are you,
but with each breath,
with the opening of the door,
We see that you and I are really the same'
It's only that simple
If only the world could swing.

*Inspiration and quotes from
'Zen Teachings through
Metaphors and stories'
