Living - Poem by Gitanjali Pather

It is in my nature to trust in a world
That mocks the meaning, to reach for
And find the intrinsic good
That elevates life and infuses meaning
Into the act of living
Where to remain vulnerable is to expose lidless eyes to a desert sun
Yet how else can living be lived
If like beetles, we shut ourselves
In carapaces of stone
So in remaining vulnerable to life
She humbles me
With near death
And new discovery of awesome love
Turning life into living
