(22nd week)

“what we call fate
does not come
into us
from the outside,
but emerges
from us.
It is only
because so many people
have not absorbed
and transformed
their fates
while they were living
in them
that they have not realized
what was emerging
from them;
it was so alien
to them
it was so alien
to them that,
in their confusion
and fear,
they thought
it must
have entered
them
at the very moment
they became aware of it,
for they swore
they had never before
found anything
like that
inside them.”

    • Cool. 🙂 Rilke is amazing. I love poetry. I love reading it and writing it. It is a divine way of expression.

      I do hope you are making it through. You are in my thoughts. Times have been rough in the health and psyche world. Going up the down staircase & spinning around in reverse way to often.

      Poetry, writing, blogging, and painting keep pulling me back from the edge. Plus talking to my therapist.

      Thank you for your message. 🙂
