Essence

I am the beauty of a single red rose

Within the thicket of sorrow’s remains


I am the seeker of truth

Within the rocky meadow of stumbling doubt


I am the wise and noble guide

Within the labyrinth of deep despair


I am the voice of calm

Within the turbulent seas of trepidation


I am the badge of courage

Within the feral forest of fear


I am the rising joy

Within the graveyards of anguish spent


I am the essence of life’s yearnings

Within the inevitability of death


And in each, I am the love, within all love

Forever and ever, and always
