Passion Sunday--The Learning Experience
Joris John Heise
True schooling starts alone:
"Face facts against the Self"—
And when self against the truth
Collides, we yield real love.
In quiet, yes, we assert
What’s true toward other selves
And find ourselves betrayed
By trust, by self, by love.
In sunk defeat we fall
From eminence of gods
But, gristed through His mills,
We grind by love back up.
And then, from deepned flour-dust
Of wounded self we birth new selves
Like sweet butterflies--like stars
That radiate enduring rays.
It’s how we choose in quiet core
And quiet care that finally counts—
Not the seem words, the placed looks—
But—past learnèd fake-stuff—doing love.
