Sometimes It Takes Darkness

Árbol de Hierve el Agua. (San Isidro, Oaxaca, noviembre de 2010)

Sweet Darkness
by David Whyte

You must learn one thing.

The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.
