The Truth Is Love

The Truth Is Love

feel how the air
rushes into your lungs
like an eager,
helpful companion
when you breathe

how the water
that you drink
becomes the suppleness
of your body
and the sparkle 
in your eyes

how fruits yield
their tender sweetness
to your mouth
and dissolve into your cells
as fuel

how iron 
from the depths of the earth
has mingled with air
to make your blood 
and nourishing

how the strength
in your bones
has arrived
as a gift
 from distant stars

you are
so fully made of 
and embraced 
by everyone
and everything else

it’s difficult to say
where you start
and where 
the world ends

your life bears witness
that the universe
is a tremendous benefaction
is, in fact, 
your friend

why then do you fear?

who is it 
you mistrust?

your fear is a lie

the truth is Mercy
the truth is Kindness

the Truth is Love
