everything known is temporary

every experience
you have
teaches you
of the nature
of temporariness,
because it comes and goes.

eventually every single thing
that you know will leave,
fall away and die.
knowing this
doesn’t stop pain and
it doesn’t take away
some of the difficulty
but it does bring an
amazing perspective
and help with the issue of
attachment.

we argue with our experience 
all the time
fearful of death.
that argument itself
is an invitation to
clear seeing.
