“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.” Michel de Montaigne

Not Normally Opened 

What is your most interesting question,
tell me, from what place did it arise,
this is quite interesting because it reveals
the nature of your intimate, true self,
it offers a sacrifice of vulnerability not
normally opened, mostly held in check,
keeping us solid, invulnerable, as the 
price of staying inert becomes obvious
to all but ourselves.

  1. This is a thought-provoking poem. The only question that comes to mind is, Why would a loving God let the innocent suffer? I guess it’s haunted me my entire life.
