I've lost everything

naked in the eternal instant

empty of all I thought I had

or was or would ever be

the pain is outrageous

the misery non-stop

the actual Reality

reducing me to what I truly am

and it's not the fulfillment

of some imagined destiny

it's not the vainglory

of our kowtowing to some idol

it's the relinquishing of the ego and the letting out

of every bodhisattva hidden therein
