The Unicorn: Captivity and Grace

July 1, 2018 life

Regal and composed,
he sits serenely,
bound and adorned,
inured to his captivity.

He is the wild
and the sacred
in all of us,
patiently waiting
for his freedom,
ready for release.

It is we, of course,
who have bound him,
who have bound ourselves.

And these chains and fences
are merely figments,
held in place by our beliefs,
until, by Grace,
they may dissolve
in the breeze of awareness.

is what flows through us
when we get out of our own way.
