We must love it....

Words that resonated with me...

the fool will go through life
at the same time life goes through him 
he will pour himself past the brim
and swim through the mess he has made
knowing that he played his part
the only way he could
that he stood still when asked to move
he did this to prove
that the only things that belong to us are the choices we choose
that we lose everything by risking nothing
that we bring about our own ending
by pretending away our pain
as if we were somehow above it 
the fool steps blindly reminding us 
we cannot not simply bear what is necessary 
we must love it.

From the poem 'Tarot'
