Portals to the beloved

It is not an error
that you have been born
a sensitive human being,
with a wide open
and sometimes broken heart.

You need not fix your vulnerability
or cover up your tenderness. Or
apologize for your raw, alive
presence any longer.

Your sadness, your confusion,
even your hopelessness and uncertainty –
all portals to the beloved,
dark and light passageways
into the pure radiance
that you are.
