Tale of the Two Mirrors, Series One

When you realize that
Everything pleasurable
Comes with the taint of suffering

This is the first noble truth.

When you reach the saturation point
And realize
That suffering is all around you
In you
And through you

This is the first noble truth

When the realization of hopes and dreams
Give way to the despair of disappointment

This is the first noble truth

When the scalding words of hatred and spite
Pierce your mind until your heart bleeds

This is the first noble truth

When family and friends fail you
And you are alone in your spiritual darkness

This is the first noble truth.

When you realize, right down to your bones,
That we all have walked a trail of tears
That we are walking it still…

This is the first noble truth.
