The Invitation

I want to know
What you ache for, and if you dare to dream.
I want to know
If you are willing to look like a fool for love, for your dreams, and for the adventure of being alive.
I want to know
If you can be with joy. If you can dance wildly and let the ecstasy fill your body without cautioning to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
I want to know
If you can sit with pain without moving to hide it, to fade it, to fix it.
I want to know
If you can see beauty even when its not always pretty every day.
I want to know
What sustains you from the inside, when all else fades away. Can you be alone with yourself , and truly love the company you keep in those empty moments?
