preparation is everything
you do not walk into a crowd
and spontaneously combust with vision and insight
as if you were a conduit of divine fire
blazing the inner eye with its truth
slow and steady as with all else in life
delivers you to the quiet of contemplation
preparation for the compassion we all evade
until it catches us in our proud fall
and realization is everything...
