Goddess

There is no Universal instruction
on how to survive duhkha—  
 each person is individual    
   
I cannot alleviate your heartache—    
 only listen, question you into yourself    
  where answers gestate    
  far from chaos    
   
It's a silent knowing of spirit    
recognizing your own truth—    
 and the exact reason    
  no earthly words exist    
   
Your Goddess is a patient sage    
allowing free choice—    
 awaits your wise return    
      
  unto the Source    
  of your own joy    
   
~
Ahavati
