I Bow To The Physical



I bow to the physical today.

I accept it’s many discomforts,

it’s limitations, it’s cruelty,

it’s unbearable weight, it’s depravations,

it’s beauty and it’s pleasures, it’s joyfulness,

the price we pay for it,

it’s suffering,

it’s pain, it’s temporality.

Today, I will offer no complaint

because, surely, one day

it will defeat me

and I will be rid of it at last.

and only then,

will I mourn it’s passing

and call it beloved.
