"die pflanze und ihr feind" Paul Klee

“die pflanze und ihr feind”
Paul Klee

All pain has already
been endured.
All emotion is but a short
depleting burst to self-medicate
those impossible things
that seem desperately
beyond our reach.

When do i fully cross the line
from temporal to eternal
and allow all-
encompassing hands
to grasp
this frail and hurting
vessel that was knit
and molded to be filled –
not foolishly drained listening
to the shallow and vain
thinkers of our time
propounding thoughts
unearthed from cynical minds.

The burden of
existential weight
cannot be overcome
unless we fully understand
that all pain has already
been endured
and is borne needing
never be borne again,
by Jesus.
Who is holy and Who is lovely.

(c) 2015 Rick Stassi
