Don’t Be a Sponge

Source of Inspiration

Sometimes I am
a sponge
absorbing another’s woe
thinking their
darkness is mine.
I can feel sad,
irritated, ill
even anger that
seems like mine
until I realize
it is not.

With intention
and ritual I call
for the Light
to illuminate me,
banish this pit
of darkness which
is not mine but
which I have let in,
even unknowingly.

The Light comes, filling
me, feelings of relief and
gratitude replace another’s
cesspool of woe–and I give
thanks and vow to be
even more diligent
less vulnerable
by focusing on that
which fills me
with love and light.
