beyond the body

the body is very powerful––
it can make you
suffer

the buddha witnessed
sickness, old age &
death––

the intolerable
ministers of
suffering––

& he offers a
path
to freedom
beyond the
body

we are the
life-force of
liberation
that moves
on

the body can
not hold
us

we are the
now that proves
forever

we reach out
to the world
with our bodies––
like flowers
reaching toward
the sun

we experience
the pain
of being
in the world––

& we are
unafraid

the force
we are
finds its
way––

an invisibility
that will not
disappear
