It is hidden in the places
that sit in front of us,
hidden from view because
we do not want to see.

It is there all the same,
waiting for the moment
of recognition when eyes
that were covered with the
film of indifference shed
their blinding skin and the
path to salvation is lit up
when once it was dark.

It sits among us as the
source, the depth of life,
the essence, that we all
need in order to begin.
