A very meaningful wording for everyone,especially this generation who has become superficial at social gatherings.Everybody pretends to be better than the other, but inside we’re only longing to be seen for who we are.
This comes from deep down in a realistic and honest way to inspire you,the reader.
It doesn’t interest me on what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
I don’t give it an interest on how old you are.
All I want to know is will you risk looking like a fool for love,for your dream and for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are
squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow.
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain be it mine or your own
without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy whether mine or your own.
if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us
to be careful,to be realistic,to remember the limitations
of being human.
It doesn’t interest me,if the story you are telling me
I want to know if you can disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day and if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure either yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the ocean
and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes.”
It doesn’t interest me to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here.I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
