The Zen of Chaos

I was taught to hide
and to keep control
and to protect myself
but one day I forgot…
or just didn’t recognise
the chaos knocking on my door
so I opened it and welcomed
what came in to disturb
it shook my fears
turned me upside down
and moved me violently out
of my comfort zone
but through the pain and tears
I saw its golden seeds…
a teacher of fear
who brought nothing but peace
a blind addict
who taught me how to break free
I listened and investigated
and integrated all that
and then transmuted…
it cleared me out and enriched
so I left my door open
that the chaos appears always
when the order doesn’t work
