Self-Sabotage

Why do we stare into the dark
When we’ve a lighted hearth behind us?

And shout our souls out to an echo
While our loved ones sit in silence?

And why does our glow of city lights
Block out all of heaven’s stars?

And why is it every unity
Divides into yours and ours?

  1. Exquisite, Rachel. The deepest understanding informs your questions.

    You want to know what I think? Well, I’m going to tell you anyway…

    I think we crave contrast – dark and light, cold and warmth, chaos and peace. In summoning these opposites, we remind ourselves of how vast a universe is before us. Of all the room there is to explore and to grow.

    Unsurprisingly, this fascinates us.
