Strength in Vulnerability


The golden grass

vulnerable and resilient

bows to the wind

humbles its form to

its surroundings

anchored by its identity

gently endures


The tree

robust and stern

impervious in its stature

confronts the wind

obstinate branches and roots

discover frailty

anchored by its identity

violently uprooted, perishes

Vulnerability, the ability to feel it and to be in it, is the strength that allows us to break down the walls we have created about ourselves and our lives. We must be like wild grass, so rooted in our being that not even the strength of a tornado can uproot us.  When we open our hearts to the situations in our lives and accept what we feel and why from within, we will see that in our vulnerability we will be completely empowered.
