I will not

I will not

I will not stay stuck
In busy mind and thinking.
I stretch and spread my
Looking, my listening,
Till feeling ignites and
Expands into fullness,
Brimming a way and
Path to knowing.

I will not spoil this day with
Guilt and shame that
Scrambles around, seeking
A place to enter,
To tighten and reduce;
To squeeze life empty
Of its juice.
