Progress, Not Perfection


Wake up in your pain, Alert

Your eyes to see and don’t fall asleep

Some will fall too soon,

And too soon they’ll be needed

When there is not enough time, Never

Enough time because time is illusive

Capturing sleepwalkers in their distress

Testing their obedience it strangles them, Pulsing

Pain waves through quiet blood, Never

Enough time because time is exclusive

To those who can’t see, Wake

Up in your pain, Alert

Your eyes to see

And don’t fall asleep.


Give yourself a chance to reflect. Feel pain and let it transform your inner person. Let your gaze be on your heart, and stare deep inside it. Let your pain make a way for love, and when you find love, love yourself. Love God, because there is no way the world was created from nothing. Love people because they need what you’ve uncovered. Not everyone can handle pain, and not everyone can bare the burdens of the broken. If you have a voice, speak. If you have passion, write. If you dance, dance. Express your pain through creativity and never stop believing in progress.

It’s progress that heals a broken heart, my friend. Not perfection.
