The liberating trap of desire

Even though it really doesn’t matter

what I do,

it does.


I used to fear desire

as if it could taint my soul

or slow my path to holiness.


But listen to me now

Knowing all things as holy

How could I judge even desire

the impulse itself is a holy fire.


I’ve also heard it said

that all desires are a trap

except one…

The desire for Freedom.


But look, from the eyes of Freedom itself…


Only the desire to return


Every desire contains it.


There’s no thing

that doesn’t lead us home.
