By Sonya Rehman

To un-bitter oneself,

How lucky to live in a harsh world and nurture a softness,

The kind that is never cynical,

Wisdom without a lack of trust,

Knowing that the sky and the earth, both, are strong enough to support you, carry you through,

To un-bitter one’s heart,

Such an uphill battle against demons past,

To laugh completely, no edges hardened in deep cynicism,

Soft as soft as soft can be,

Still rivers of tears in reserve to command at will, an endless reservoir of softness to draw from,

To un-bitter oneself.
