On Feeling Bad

It is hard to keep balance in life while trying to meet all expectations;
Disappointment and sadness are inevitable when we overextend
and probable even when we don’t.

I wish I were better at life and responsible for less suffering;
Avalokiteshvara vows to save innumerable beings with her 1000 arms
but I only have two and wasn’t there for you.

Simplify, closer, simplify; Embrace, further, embrace;
The path to eternity is to die 1000 times today
and to find your smile in time to die again tomorrow.
